Sushma Swaraj meets Bangladesh foreign minister

New Delhi, March 2 (IANS) External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj held a meeting with her Bangladeshi counterpart Abul Hassan Mahmud Ali here on Wednesday.

“A valued neighbour, an important friend. EAM meets with Bangladeshi FM Abul Hassan Mahmud Ali,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted.

The meeting assumes significance because of the Bangladesh government’s clampdown on terrorist elements following the killing of a head priest of a Hindu temple in the country last month, the responsibility for which was claimed by the Islamic State (IS) terror outfit

On Tuesday, Ali addressed the Raisina Dialogue here, a global conclave on geopolitics and geo-economics organised by the external affairs ministry and the Observer Research Foundation.

He called for integration of the South Asian nations saying that the newly formed Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal (BBIN) sub-regional coordinative architecture would prove to be a game changer in the region.
