US Ambassador to Bangladesh Peter Haas returned to Dhaka yesterday.
He reached Dhaka on a regular flight of Sri Lankan Airlines at 11:50 am, a source at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport said.
It could not be known immediately whether the US ambassador returned from Colombo or whether that was his transit point.
According to media reports, Haas went on vacation and left Dhaka on November 16 for Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Amid rumors about his departure from Dhaka, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it is a diplomatic procedure to inform the host country through diplomatic channels when any ambassador or high com-missioner leaves station, which the ministry cannot make public.
