Opposition and government halt standoff over missing politician in bid to make good impression on US secretary of state.

Bangladesh is doing everything it can to impress Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, who is in the country on a 24-hour visit.

For weeks, the country's opposition - angered by the disappearance of one of its most outspoken leaders - has staged general strikes against the authorities.

But for the duration of Clinton's visit, the opposition called a truce with the government.

For once, both parties agree on the importance of making a good impression - a move due at least in part to the fact that the US is Bangladesh's largest financial donor.

Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Dhaka.
