Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Dhaka on Friday on a two-day visit to Bangladesh during which he will attend the celebrations of the golden jubilee of the country’s independence, reported Press Trust of India.

This is Modi’s first foreign visit post COVID-19 outbreak in India last year in March. The Prime Minister is set to visit the birth centenary of ‘Bangabandhu’ Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and hold talks with his counterpart Sheikh Hasina.

Modi was received by Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Hasina at Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport upon his arrival, where he received a guard of honour.

“Our partnership with Bangladesh is an important pillar of our Neighbourhood First policy, and we are committed to further deepen and diversify it. We will continue to support Bangladesh’s remarkable development journey, under Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s dynamic leadership,” Modi tweeted ahead of his visit.

He wrote that he was looking forward to remembering the life and ideals of ‘Bangabandhu’ Rahman, and celebrate 50 years of Bangladesh’s War of Liberation, as well as our diplomatic ties.

Later, Modi will join the celebration programme as the guest of honour at the National Parade Square. Bangladesh President Abdul Hamid will be the chief guest at the function, which would be chaired by Prime Minister Hasina.

On Saturday afternoon, Modi will hold talks with Hasina at the Prime Minister’s Office, where at least five MoUs are expected to be signed and a number of projects inaugurated virtually.
