President Ram Nath Kovind will be on a three-day visit to Dhaka for 50th Victory Day celebrations.
NEW DELHI: There is no unease in India’s relationship with Bangladesh following the controversies over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and violence against Hindus, the government asserted ahead of President Ram Nath Kovind‘s three-day visit to Dhaka for 50th Victory Day celebrations.
Foreign secretary Harsh Shringla said the visit starting Wednesday will strongly reinforce the “very, very strong bonds of friendship and cooperation” between the two countries. “I would completely dispel any perception that there is any unease in the relationship,” said Shringla.
The relationship is an extraordinary one,” said Shringla.
Shringla also confirmed that Bangladesh had been the largest recipient of Indian vaccines and that, so far, it had received 2.18 crore doses of India-made vaccines, of which 33 lakh had been gifted and 1.5 crore extended on commercial basis. The remaining 35 lakh were provided under the Covax terms.
