New Delhi: Narendra Modi has accepted the invitation of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to visit Bangladesh. He will visit Bangladesh on the 26th and 27th of this month. This was announced by the Union Ministry of External Affairs. “The visit of the prime minister to Bangladesh will be the first visit to a foreign country since the outbreak of the Covid pandemic. This highlights the priority India attaches to Bangladesh,” the external affairs ministry said.
