India and Bangladesh will soon sit for the Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) meeting at the foreign minister’s level to review the entire gamut of the bilateral relations between the two countries.

The meeting to be held this month will be on a virtual platform which will discuss all projects.

Foreign Minister S Jaishankar had a telephone conversation with his Bangladesh counterpart AK Abdul Momen and discussed the issue.

“Warm conversation with foreign minister Dr AK Abdul Momen of Bangladesh. Agreed to hold our joint consultative commission very soon. Will continuously work closely to reach the ambitious goals set by our leaders,” tweeted Jaishankar.

The JCC would set a roadmap for taking forward the bilateral cooperation to the next level. Review on projects is likely to get importance as a priority issue in the next JCC to expedite the implementation process.

Officials said that a high-level monitoring mechanism is likely to be set up to regularly review the progress of the ongoing projects.

The fifth meeting of the Bangladesh-India JCC was held in New Delhi on February 8 last year. The next FM-level meeting will review ongoing cooperation including the implementation of decisions taken so far including those issues agreed in the last JCC.
