Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi are scheduled to meet on September 27 at the sideline of United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, USA.

“Both the prime minister is expected to meet at the sideline of the UNGA and discuss about the issues of mutual interest,” said Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haq.

The meeting is considered very significant as it will be their first meeting, he said.

Before the meeting, Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali and his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj will have a joint consultative commission meeting in New Delhi on September 20.

This will be Mahmood’s first official visit to New Delhi after the Modi government assumed power in May by winning a landslide election.

Teesta water sharing, ratification of Land Boundary Agreement, border killing, trade, connectivity and other issues will dominate the talks.

In June, Modi in a letter to Hasina expressed his interest to further accelerating the bilateral engagement and strengthening the framework of the relationships.
