This is the first meeting between the two leaders after Momen took over his charge five months back and former diplomat Jaishankar was made the external affairs minister last month. In the meeting, Momen drew Jaishankar’s attention to Bangladesh’s expectations about signing of a deal on sharing the Teesta River water and about stopping killings at the border areas. He also sought India's active support to resolve the Rohingya issue. Jaiashankar mentioned the importance of Bangladesh as the gateway to India's eastern economic diplomacy. Momen also sought the cooperation of Jaiashankar in attracting Indian investment in almost 100 special economic zones in Bangladesh.
