It was interesting to see that Khaleda Zia could manage a nearly hour long audience with newly appointed Saudi Crown Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz during the latter’s visit. With King Abdullah’s deteriorating health, Salman is most likely to be the next King. Nayef was not going to make it too long as crown prince anyway. Everybody knew that.
But this is not surprising given BNP’s historical links with the Kingdom. What was surprising was Khaleda’s hour long chat with Clinton at her home. During government talks, Hillary even did not use the napkins provided by GOB. Apparently she brought everything from USA, even water bottles. In Government meeting with Hasina/ Dipu moni Hillary did not touch anything. But when Hillary visited KZ, she ate rosogolla, drank coconut water etc. Hillary is a master of body language.
