“India was the first country that I visited after taking office as foreign minister. So I hope, he (Jaishankar) would visit Bangladesh early,” he told reporters at his office on Monday.
Admiring Jaishankar as an icon in the diplomatic world, Momen said he hoped Dhaka would be able to work with him in a good manner.
The Bangladesh foreign minister said that Bangladesh and India would continue as partners for alleviating poverty in the region in the days to come.
In a letter to his Bangladesh counterpart on June 4, Jaishankar expressed his keen interest to visit Bangladesh soon.
Jaishankar observed the recent electoral victories of Bangladesh Awami League and Indian National Democratic Alliance with huge mandates showed that the people in both the countries were in favour of Bangladesh-India partnership.
