The 7th round of the Bangladesh-India Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) meeting will be held in New Delhi tomorrow, Sunday (June 18) to discuss various bilateral issues, officials said.

Bangladesh Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen and Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar will co-chair the meeting, MEA sources said.

Momen arrived in India today to join the JCC, a first physical meeting convened since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the previous edition held virtually in 2020.

On his arrival here this afternoon, the Foreign Minister was received by Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Muhammad Imran and high officials from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.

“The JCC will review the entire gamut of bilateral relations, including cooperation in the wake of Covid-19,” the officials said.

However, an MEA statement said that the issues including border management, security, trade and investment, connectivity, energy, water resources, development partnership and regional and multilateral issues will also be discussed.

As part of his three-day India visit, Foreign Minister Momen will join a function styled “Interactive Business Meeting” being jointly organized by the Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
