Jaishankar to arrive in Bangladesh on three-day official visit

(Rptg, correcting headline)
Dhaka, Aug 19 (UNI) Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar will arrive in Dhaka on Monday night on a three-day official visit to strengthen the bilateral relations between the two nations.
Foreign Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen will receive his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar at the VIP Lounge of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 2120 hrs, said a ministry press release.
According to the foreign ministry, the Indian External Affairs Minister will visit the Bangabandhu Museum the next day and both Dr A K Abdul Momen and S Jaishankar will hold a bilateral meeting at the State Guest House Padma 1100 hrs on the same day.
S Jaishankar is scheduled to call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the day.
Earlier on July 29, Momen said Jaishankar’s visit will be a courtesy trip. He said his Indian counterpart accepted his invitation to visit Bangladesh.
Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali called on the Indian foreign minister in New Delhi in July and conveyed him the Bangladesh Foreign Minister’s invitation to visit Bangladesh.
In June Momen invited Jaishankar when he held first meeting with his new Indian counterpart on the sidelines of the 5th Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA).
During that meeting, Jaishankar assured that he would visit Bangladesh at his convenient time.
It will be the S Jaishankar’s first Bangladesh visit after taking oath to office in Narendra Modi’s cabinet on May 30.
S Jaishankar, a career diplomat, served as India's foreign secretary from January 2015 to January 2018.
The 64-year-old had joined the Indian Foreign Service in 1977 and had stints as the High Commissioner to Singapore and the Ambassador to China and the US.
He is credited for helping resolve the Doklam stand-off through negotiations with China.
Earlier in 2007, he played a key role in negotiating the Indo-US civilian nuclear agreement that was signed by the UPA government.
After his retirement from the Indian foreign services in 2018, he had taken over as the Tata Group's president of Global Corporate Affairs.
S Jaishankar was honoured with the Padma Shri award by President Ram Nath Kovind in March this year.
