Dhaka-London talks Tuesday; MoU to be signed
Bangladesh and the United Kingdom will have an ‘inclusive discussion’ on Tuesday covering all the aspects of ‘multidimensional’ relationship between the two countries.
Economic cooperation, security and issues related to shared-values like democratic values and respect for human rights are likely to be discussed in the discussion titled ‘Strategic Dialogue’, diplomatic sources said.
Brexit impacts, visa issues and airport security are also likely to be discussed at the dialogue to be held for the first time.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) on regular holding of the strategic dialogue will be signed by the two sides prior to the dialogue, said a senior Foreign Ministry official on Monday.
Permanent Under Secretary and Head of the Diplomatic Service at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Sir Simon McDonald and his Bangladesh counterpart Md Shahidul Haque will sign the MoU at State guesthouse Meghna.
