Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen did not accompany Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to India.
“He (Momen) is feeling unwell. He didn’t go with the PM,” an official told UNB today (September 5, 2022).
At the invitation of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bangladesh PM Hasina is paying a state visit to New Delhi from September 5 to 8.
Hasina is visiting India after three years. She last visited India in 2019 before the Covid-19 pandemic broke out.
The latest visit is significant for both Bangladesh and India, said the government of Bangladesh.
The visit will further strengthen the multifaceted relationship between the two countries based on strong historical, cultural ties, mutual trust and understanding, said the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.
