New Delhi – I am happy that my first foreign visit after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic will be to our friendly neighbouring country Bangladesh, with which India shares deep cultural, linguistic and people-to-people ties said Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He has said that India will remain Bangladesh’s partner as both countries jointly march towards the golden future for which Bangabandhu, and millions of patriotic Bangladeshis, and thousands of Indians, gave their all.

In a Bangladesh daily newspaper Mr Modi said that in this historic commemorative year, India looks forward to the completion of important connectivity projects like the India-Bangladesh Friendship pipeline and the Akhaura-Agartala rail link.
