Hasina, Modi to meet virtually in December

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi will hold a virtual meeting in December.

The meeting between the two prime ministers would be held during Bangladesh's Victory Day and ahead of completion of Mujib Borsho.

Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said this while talking to reporters at his office yesterday.

He also indicated that Modi would be in Dhaka if the Covid-19 situation improved.

"India is our neighbour and our best friend. We have many things to discuss," said the foreign minister.

Momen hinted that bilateral agreements would be signed at that time.

He said today's foreign minister-level meeting between the two countries would be a short one and they were not planning to sign any documents.

On October 5 last year, Hasina and Modi held bilateral talks in New Delhi. Hasina was in India on an official visit at the invitation of the Indian PM.

In March this year, the two prime ministers joined a virtual meeting of Saarc countries on cooperation to deal with the Covid-19 situation in the region.
