DHAKA, March 02, 2015: – Indian foreign secretary Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar arrived here today from Bhutan at 11:45 am by a special plane on a one-day trip to Bangladesh.
From Bangladesh the foreign secretary is expected to fly to Pakistan. The journey of India’s top diplomat has been widely described as the “SAARC Yatra” (SAARC journey) by the Indian media.
He was received at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport by the foreign secretary of Bangladesh, M Shahidul Haque and the Indian high commissioner to Bangladesh, Pankaj Saran.
During his stay he is expected to meet the foreign secretary, Foreign Minister Abul Hasan Mahmood Ali and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Jaishankar’s visit is expected to pave the way for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming trip to Bangladesh as such he will prepare the ground work for it including sorting out two of the outstanding issues between the two neighboring countries ——the Land Boundary Agreement and Teesta Water Sharing Agreement – for a possible “deal” during the Modi visit.
