Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has sworn-in on May 30 for the second term conveyed his gesture at a meeting with Bangladesh President Abdul Hamid in New Delhi. Hamid was among one of the invitees of the swearing-in ceremony Modi who had attended the same on May 30.
Hamid called Modi on Friday to discuss bilateral issues involving the two neighbouring countries. Press Secretary to the Bangladesh President, M Joynal Abedin said that Modi has viewed that if the two countries take a joint effort to celebrate the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence and the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman it will receive global attention.
