Bangladesh and India have agreed to convene the Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) between the two countries at the earliest.
The meeting would be convened at the level of Foreign Ministers and it is expected that several senior delegates from the foreign ministries of the two nations would take part in it.
It may be mentioned here that JCC provides an excellent platform to discuss the entire gamut of bilateral relations between the two countries.
Meanwhile, foreign secretary of Bangladesh Masud Bin Momen on Thursday congratulated his Indian counterpart Harsh Vardhan Shringla on India becoming a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.
Momen conveyed Bangladesh’s greater expectation from India as a member of the UNSC to play a more meaningful role for a lasting solution to the Rohingya crisis.
Shringla also expressed India’s willingness to be in close contact with Bangladesh and other neighbouring countries.
Momen also appreciated the Indian government for facilitating the evacuation of stranded Bangladeshi nationals from India to Bangladesh in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
Momen also requested Shringla to expedite the return of the Tablighi members of Bangladesh who were hit by the lockdown in India.
Momen also requested for the early release of the 25 Bangladeshi fishermen who are in custody in Dhubri district of Assam.
Shringla assured that the matter has been addressed and the Bangladeshi nationals will be able to return soon.
