Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has arrived Dhaka today on a three-day official visit.

Foreign Minister Dr A K Abdul Momen received his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar at the VIP Lounge of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 9.20pm tonight.

According to the foreign ministry, the Indian External Affairs Minister will visit the Bangabandhu Museum on Dhanmondi Road No. 32 in the morning of August 20 to pay respect to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Both Dr A K Abdul Momen and S Jaishankar will hold a bilateral meeting at the State Guest House Padma at 11am on the same day.
