´╗┐Foreign Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud will leave here this afternoon for Turkey and Saudi Arabia on a 6-day official tour. 

In Turkey, Mahmud will attend the "Antalya Diplomacy Forum" to take place from March 1 to 3 at the invitation of his Turkish counterpart, a foreign ministry official told BSS today. 

From Turkey, the foreign minister will go to Saudi Arabia to attend a foreign ministerial meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to be held in Jeddah from March 4 to 5, he added. 

The foreign minister is scheduled to hold a number of bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the events in both Turkey and Saudi Arabia, said the official.

Mahmud will depart Dhaka boarding an Emirates flight at 6:30 pm, and he is scheduled to return home on March 6. 

In its third edition, the Antalya Diplomacy Forum will gather heads of states and governments, ministers, diplomats, business leaders, academics, think-tankers, and youth and media representatives for an all-encompassing debate.

The overarching theme of this year's Forum will be "Advancing Diplomacy in Times of Turmoil".

It aims to serve as a thorough reflection and the means for searching a peaceful way out of the turbulent period our world is going through.
