Bangladesh Foreign Minister To Visit Delhi On February 7

Bangladesh’s newly appointed Foreign Minister, Hasan Mahmud, is scheduled for a three-day visit to New Delhi on February 7. It will be Mahmud’s first bilateral visit to India after his appointment.

On Monday, the Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh, Pranay Verma, extended the invitation on behalf of the Indian External Affairs Minister, and in return, Memon accepted the invitation. His first diplomatic meeting was with the Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka. After the meeting with the new FM, the Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka said that India is very hopeful and confident to achieve greater momentum in the India-Bangladesh partnership after the new term of Bangladesh.

Mahmud stated in an interview that he expected New Delhi to be his first stop on a bilateral visit at a mutually convenient time. He was later asked if he would meet the Indian Prime Minister during his visit, to which he replied that the planning is still at an early stage and nothing has been finalised yet.

On Sunday, Dr Jaishankar took to his official X account and congratulated Hasan Mahmud on his appointment as the Foreign Minister of Bangladesh. He looks forward to working together with his counterpart to strengthen the India-Bangladesh friendship.
