On 19th August 2020, it was announced that between India and Bangladesh, the entire range of bilateral ties are to be discussed when External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar visit Dhaka. But unfortunately, due to some reasons, it has been not done.
On 2nd September 2020, with agreement on conducting 6th meeting between both countries of the Joint Consultative Commission, Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar has asserted his interest in visiting Dhaka this month to build on the momentum in ties.
Before confirming, A K Momen had a telephonic discussion with his Indian counterpart Jaishankar on Monday.
They have agreed on to hold the 6th meeting of the Joint Consultative Commission(JCC) at the ministerial level on a practical political platform. And the meeting is anticipated to be held later this month(September).
“Warm conversation with FM Dr A.K. Abdul Momen of Bangladesh. Agreed to hold our Joint Consultative Commission very soon. Will continue to work closely to reach the ambitious goals set by our leaders,” tweeted Jaishankar.
Due to India’s International Travel ban, they couldn’t conduct a meet but after the relief of this, S. Jaishankar showed his interest in visiting Bangladesh and moving ahead of a discussion on momentum in ties.And this would be a meet mostly about the COVID-19 issues and on tackling it.
A recent visit by the Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan on a two days visit earned the highest level of engagement for the upcoming meet.
