Khaleda attends dinner hosted by Reaz Rahman

BNP Chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia yesterday had dinner with former US Congressman Gregory Laughlin at the Basundhara residence of former foreign affairs adviser Reaz Rahman.

But after dinner, Khaleda did not talk with the press.

Tarique Rahman's wife Dr Zobaida Rahman and family members of Reaz Rahman were present at the dinner.

A highly placed source at the BNP told The Daily Star that current political situation in the country was discussed informally during the dinner. Khaleda stayed there for about four hours.

Laughlin told awaiting reporters that current events in Bangladesh were discussed. However, Reaz Rahman said it was just a social function.
