Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said that his country has invited PM Narendra Modi to join the celebrations of the 50 years of the country’s independence on March 26 next year. This announcement came after India’s newly-appointed High Commissioner to Bangladesh Vikram Doraiswai had called Momen in Dhaka. Bangladesh could be among the first few foreign destinations which PM Modi will visit post-COVID-19 outbreak. Speaking further about PM Modi’s proposed visit to the country next year, Dr Momen said that Bangladesh and India will celebrate Bangladesh’s 50 years of independence together next year. A virtual meeting between the Prime Ministers of the two nations is also likely to take place later this year. Before the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic, PM Modi was scheduled to visit Bangladesh to join in the birth centenary celebrations of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
