By Sumi Khan Dhaka, March 4 : Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar on Thursday congratulated Bangladesh on behalf of his country for exiting the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) status, crediting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for the country’s “expected graduation”.
The Indian minister arrived in Dhaka by a special aircraft on Thursday morning and was welcomed by Bangladesh Foreign Minister A.K. Abdul Momen at the Bangabandhu Air Base.
Jaishankar is visiting Dhaka on the invitation of Momen, aiming to deepen the ties between the two countries.
He said the significance of his country’s ties with Bangladesh lie in the centrality for their ‘Neighbourhood First’ motto and the growing relevance of the ‘Act East’ policy.
“It is a tribute to your miraculous socio-economic progress, and the statesmanship of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina,” Jaishankar said.
“We see Bangladesh as a key neighbour and a valued partner not only in South Asia, but also in the broader Indo-Pacific region. Every outcome and achievement in our relationship resonates through the region. This is why we are working to expand our partnership in all dimensions, ranging from security, trade, transport and connectivity, culture, people to people tie, to energy, joint development of our shared resources and defence ties,” Jaishankar added.
