Dhaka, March 12: Foreign Minister Ak Abdul Momen has said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Dhaka visit on the occasion of the birth centenary of Bangabandhu and the golden jubilee of independence will be to celebrate, and the Indian delegation will not discuss unresolved issues of the two countries this time. The foreign minister was responding to a question from reporters after a function at Hotel Intercontinental in Dhaka on Friday.

He said, "We are very happy that Narendra Modi is coming. Not only him, I saw four more heads of state and government coming. Heads of state and government of Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and India are coming. We are very happy, it shows the height of diplomatic maturity and achievement. '

The celebration of the centenary of the birth of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was supposed to be held on a large scale at the national level on March 16 last year. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also scheduled to attend the event. But due to the coronavirus epidemic, everything was suspended.

On the occasion of the golden jubilee of independence, a number of events have been organized at the national level for ten days from 18 to 26 March this month. The Indian Prime Minister is scheduled to arrive in Dhaka on March 26 to attend. The next day he is scheduled to visit the Jessoreswari temple in Satkhira, Bangabandhu's tomb at Tungipara in Gopalganj and a temple belonging to the Matua community at Orakandi in Kashiani.

Those who want to know whether there will be any MoU with Modi during this visit are described by the foreign minister as an 'il element'. He said, "They are all united with us, coming to celebrate our Independence Day, Golden Jubilee and Bangabandhu's centenary - this is our greatest achievement."

A journalist wanted to know whether there would be any discussion on the long-pending Teesta treaty during the Indian Prime Minister's visit. In the middle of his speech, the minister said, "Apart from that, what we want is a joyous festival, everyone is coming to our big festival, we are happy about it."

And other small things that ... we have solved all the big problems with India through negotiations. And if there are any, I will do them slowly. But this event should not be an action for resolving.

“This event is a very special event,” Momen said. This is the respect of these countries for Bangladesh, their great interest in independence, Bangabandhu, who has dedicated his whole life for the realization of human rights.

The foreign minister said the countries whose heads of state or government are not coming have also sent messages. The President of China, the Prime Minister of Canada, the President of France sent the message.
