When is the Bangladesh Foreign Minister visiting India?

As you know the Bangladesh High Commissioner called on the External Affairs Minister yesterday. Later in the evening the External Affairs Minister called the Bangladesh Foreign Minister and spoke to him. The External Affairs Minister had already invited in August last year the Bangladesh Foreign Minister to visit India. He renewed the invitation and the dates will be worked out through diplomatic channels.

So the 213 Bangladeshi citizens have gone back to Bangladesh. Will there still be a visit?

Yes, we are aware that the 213 Bangladeshi citizens who were stranded on the zero line have been able to return to Bangladesh. On the visit, I have given you the position.

Did this happen today morning?

I understand it happened early this morning.

Is there any procedure for checking the nationality…..

Well, every country has a system by which nationality is defined and citizenship is defined. Where there are problems, then there are agreed modalities for verification.

Why is BDR denying that these 213 people have gone back to Bangladesh?

No, it is my understanding that they have all returned home in Bangladesh and not a single person has entered India. Thank You.
