Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)-Directives have been given to all the airports of Bangladesh to get ready for handling the international relief materials coming for the quake-torm Nepal, said Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
The airports are: Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka, Chittagong airports, Sylhet airport and Syedpur airport.
Even the Lalmonirhat Air Strip was asked to keep prepared for dealing with the aid, the PM said.
A strong earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale rattled Nepal on April 25, making Kathmandu a city of death and destruction.
The quake left over 5,000 dead and several thousand buildings destroyed.
The Bangladesh government has already talked to India so that the relief materials could go to Nepal through the Banglabandha Land Port, the PM said.
Hasina made the disclosure while she was addressing the inaugural session of the International Conference on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) for Sustainable Development at the Osmani Memorial Auditorium in the city.
The Bangladesh government has already sent relief materials to friendly neighbour Nepal which had helped Bangladesh during its Liberation War, and steps are being taken to send more relief items, she added.
