The 5th India-Bangladesh Joint Consultative Committee Meeting was held in New Delhi today.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Foreign Affairs Minister of Bangladesh Dr Abdul Momen co-chaired the meeting.
In a tweet, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Mrs Swaraj and Mr Momen took stock of progress in security, defence, trade and connectivity, development partnership, water, power and energy sectors, and consular and cultural cooperation.
The last Joint Consultative Committee Meeting between the two countries was held in October 2017 at Dhaka. Earlier, Mrs Swaraj held a bilateral meeting with Mr Momen.
The Foreign Affairs Minister of Bangladesh arrived in New Delhi on Wednesday on a four day visit to India. It is the first high-level visit from Bangladesh since Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's victory in the parliamentary elections in December last year. (AIR NEWS)
