A meeting of the Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) between Bangladesh and India will be held today at 3:30 pm. This will be the first virtual meeting due to the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen and Indian Foreign Minister Dr. S Jaishankar will lead their respective sides in the meeting.

According to Foreign Ministry sources, this is the sixth JCC meeting between Bangladesh and India. The agenda of the meeting was prepared at an inter-ministerial meeting in Dhaka last Sunday. The meeting will focus on the Rohingya crisis, water sharing in common rivers, energy, connectivity, trade, and border issues.

Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen in the meantime had a telephone conversation with Indian Foreign Minister Dr. S Jaishankar ahead of the meeting.
