Sheikh Hasina’s visit to India underlines close ties: Jaishankar

Indian External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar has said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s state visit to India underlines their ‘close and abiding’ ties.

He said this after a meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Hotel Taj Palace in the Indian capital on Friday.

“Delighted to call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of Bangladesh this (Friday) evening. Appreciate her guidance on the further development of our special partnership,” he said.

Jaishankar shared the message on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina arrived in New Delhi on Friday afternoon on a two-day state visit at the invitation of her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

This is the first bilateral visit by any head of government to India after the BJP-led alliance formed its government for the third consecutive time following the Lok Sabha elections.

During the visit, both the premiers will have a tête-à-tête (one to one meeting) followed by delegation level talks, and Dhaka and New Delhi would sign several agreements and Memorandum of understandings to strengthen the existing bilateral ties further.
Additionally, discussions on a potential trade pact are expected.
