PM Modi Holds Bilateral Talks With Bangladeshi Counterpart Sheikh Hasina


New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi held bilateral talks with his visiting Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina at Hyderabad House in the national capital on Saturday.

Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson, Randhir Jaiswal, said that PM Modi extended a warm welcome to his Bangladesh counterpart and noted that the two leaders have met 10 times since 2019.

“Deepening India-Bangladesh Maitri! PM Narendra Modi extended a warm welcome to PM Sheikh Hasina of Bangladesh at Hyderabad House ahead of their bilateral discussions. The two leaders have met each other ten times since 2019, making unprecedented transformations in the relationship,” Jaiswal said in a post on X.

Hasina, the first foreign guest on a bilateral State visit to India after the formation of the Modi 3.0 government, received a ceremonial welcome at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan early this morning. The Ministry of External Affairs termed this a ceremonial welcome for a “special partner.”

The Bangladesh PM arrived in India on Friday for a two-day State visit at the invitation of Prime Minister Modi. “A ceremonial welcome for a special partner! PM @narendramodi received PM Sheikh Hasina of Bangladesh at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan, as the first guest on a bilateral State Visit after the formation of the new government in India,” MEA spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal posted on X on Saturday.

Sheikh Hasina and Prime Minister Modi met with ministers and delegates from both countries at the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan. External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, Union Minister JP Nadda, Ministers of State Jitendra Singh, and Kirti Vardhan Singh were also present to welcome the Bangladesh PM.

Following this, PM Hasina paid homage to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat. “A heartfelt homage to Bapu! PM Sheikh Hasina of Bangladesh paid respects to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat. Mahatma’s ideals continue to serve as guiding principles of our close and warm relationship,” the MEA spokesperson said in a subsequent post.

This visit will give a “major boost” to India-Bangladesh ties, Jaiswal earlier said in a social media post. EAM Jaishankar had on Friday called on the visiting Bangladesh PM. Following the meeting, the Union Minister said that her state visit highlights “close and abiding ties” between the two countries.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was among the international leaders who attended the swearing-in ceremony of the Prime Minister and the Union Council of Ministers on June 9.

Over the years, India and Bangladesh have forged a multifaceted relationship, marked by a shared history, culture, and geographical proximity. The two neighbors enjoy warm ties, which have further expanded under the leadership of PM Modi and Sheikh Hasina. The year 2023 witnessed a surge of bilateral activities between both countries as an embodiment of the strength of the relationship. Both Prime Ministers jointly inaugurated the India-Bangladesh Friendship Pipeline on March 18 in a virtual format.

The Bangladeshi PM also participated virtually in the Inaugural Session of the Voice of the Global South Summit on January 11, 2023, and the second Virtual Voice of the Global South Summit on November 17, 2023.
