Minister Salman Khurshid
India's Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid meets his Bangladeshi counterpart Dipu Moni for the second joint consultative commission gathering. The first joint meeting between the two countries took place in May 2012. It is expected that Khurshid and Moni will now discuss all bilateral issues and review implementation of projects which are being financed by Indian credit worth $1 billion. During his visit, Khurshid will also complete preparations for the tour of India's President Pranab Mukherjee to Bangladesh in March. The tour will be Mukherjee's first visit abroad after taking over the presidency last year.
