PM Modi among world leaders to attend 50th anniversary of Bangladesh independence
Several world leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and heads of state and government from Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and the Maldives, are set to visit Bangladesh later this month to participate in the grand celebrations to mark the golden jubilee of the country’s independence from Pakistan.
The golden jubilee celebrations will be held from March 17-27 to mark the country’s independence from Pakistan after the 1971 Liberation War.
Prime Minister Modi and four heads of state and government from Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and the Maldives will be among the distinguished foreign guests to join the celebrations under separate schedules.
Modi will arrive on March 26 on a two-day visit and will join the main Independence Day celebrations that will also mark 50 years of Bangladesh-India diplomatic relations.
