Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit Dhaka on the golden jubilee of independence (March 26). Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen is set to fly for Delhi on January 27 to finalise his visit.
Foreign Ministry sources confirmed the matter on Sunday (January 17).
According to the ministry sources, the foreign secretary will visit Delhi from January 27 to 29. He will invite Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to visit Dhaka on March 26, the golden jubilee of independence. If the coronavirus situation turns normal, the Prime Minister of India is most likely to visit Dhaka as announced earlier.
Earlier on March 17, a virtual meeting was held between Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi. Indian PM had a plan to visit Dhaka on December 16, on the occasion of the victory day. But the visit could not take place due to the coronavirus situation. So, the two PMs again met virtually.
It was learned that Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen will hold a foreign office consultation meeting between the two countries in Delhi during his three-day visit. He will also meet with Indian foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla. The meeting is expected to discuss water sharing, trade, rail communication and vaccination cooperation in the prevention of coronavirus.
Mentionable, Indian foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla made a visit to Dhaka on August 18. At that time, he had a bilateral meeting with foreign secretary Masud Bin Momen. Foreign secretary Masud Bin Momen was scheduled to visit Delhi last December. But that tour was canceled because he was infected with coronavirus.
