Taking to Twitter, Jaishankar wrote, “A warm welcome to FM Dr. AK Abdul Momen for the 7th India-Bangladesh Joint Consultative Commission meeting. Our regular meetings reflect our unique friendship.”

   The first physical JCC Meeting between India and Bangladesh is being held in New Delhi today and EAM S Jaishankar is the co-chair of the meeting along with his Bangladeshi counterpart AK Abdul Momen.

The JCC is to review the bilateral ties including cooperation in the wake of Covid-19, border management and security, trade and investment, connectivity, energy, water resources, development partnership and regional and multilateral issues, the MEA said.

This is the first physical meeting since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out. The previous meeting was held in 2020 virtually. Both countries actively engage in cooperation projects to boost bilateral relations. As part of the ongoing Indo-Bangladesh defense cooperation, the armies of India and Bangladesh recently conducted the 10th edition of the joint military exercise — SAMPRITI X — from June 5 to June 16 in Bangladesh.
