DHAKA: Visit of External Affairs Minister to Bangladesh

DHAKA: Continuing our frequent high-level exchanges, in the spirit of close fraternal ties between the two countries, External Affairs Minister (EAM) Dr. S Jaishankar is currently on an official visit to Bangladesh.

This afternoon, EAM called on Prime Minister of Bangladesh, H.E. Sheikh Hasina and conveyed Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s invitation to her to visit India at her convenience later this year. EAM also exchanged views on bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest with the Hon’ble Prime Minister.

EAM also met his counterpart, Foreign Minister of Bangladesh, Dr. AK Abdul Momen and extended him an invitation to attend the next meeting of the Joint Consultative Commission to be held in India prior to the visit of Prime Minister H.E. Sheikh Hasina.

Both sides have maintained a steady level of momentum in high level visits particularly in the commemorative year of the golden jubilee of diplomatic ties. The visit of EAM provided a useful opportunity to review the progress in bilateral ties and ways to further strengthen it.
