Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar is coming to Dhaka with a letter from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inviting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to visit India.He will pay a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and hold talks with Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen during his two-day visit to Dhaka on April 28.
Both the President and the Prime Minister of India visited Bangladesh in 2021 to mark the 50th anniversary of independence. For good reason, a top leader from Bangladesh is scheduled to visit India this time. According to Foreign Ministry sources, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina may visit India next July.
Jaishankar is bringing an invitation letter from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina visit to India in the second or third week of June, the sources said.
In March last year, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the birth centenary and golden jubilee celebrations of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in Dhaka. Besides, the President of India Ram Nath Kovind came to Bangladesh last December. The visit of two top Indian leaders to Bangladesh in the same year was a unique example.
Narendra Modi had invited Sheikh Hasina to visit India. However, the visit was not possible last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This time Modi is sending an invitation letter through Foreign Minister Jaishankar for that visit.
