Bangladesh Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen wished for a quick recovery of former Indian President Pranab Mukherjee who tested positive for coronavirus.

A foreign ministry press release said on Tuesday.

In a message sent to Pranab Mukherjee’s office, the foreign minister mentioned that Pranab Mukherjee is a true friend of Bangladesh. I had an opportunity to meet him in the year of 1973-1974 when he was the state minister for the commerce of India. Later, I visited India after assuming the office of the foreign ministry and went his residence with my wife to invite him to attend the celebration of birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. I hope he will visit Bangladesh after a quick recovery.
