Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to pay official visits to Spain and Brazil from July 21 to further strengthen ties with these two countries engaging in broader areas of cooperation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is taking preparations for these two separate bilateral visits, officials said.

Prime Minister Hasinas official visit to Madrid, Spain is tentatively planned for from July 21-23, a senior official told UNB.

After completion of her visit to Spain, she is likely to pay an official visit to Brazil on July 24-26 with a likely stopover in London, he said,adding that these are tentativeschedules.

Brazilian Ambassador Paulo Fernando Dias Feres recently said that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasinas visit to Brazil will be "bilateral" in nature.

Brazil, South Americas most influential country, wants to strengthen its ties with Bangladesh on key fronts with a possible visit of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Earlier, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva invited the Prime Minister to pay a bilateral visit to Brazil.

 "This is a bilateral visit. Its just her. The idea is that she can launch with President Lula the global programme against hunger and then she will go to Brasilia for all the ceremonies of a full opera visit. So thats the idea," said Brazilian Ambassador Paulo Fernando Dias Feres while talking to diplomatic correspondents at "DCAB Talk" at Jatiya Press Club recently.
 This will be the first bilateral visit of the prime minister to any Latin American country which is seen as a rising economic power and one of the worlds biggest democracies.
