Prime Minister Modi visited Bangladesh in the month of March. He went to Dhaka to participate in celebrations to mark 50 years of Bangladesh’s independence. Earlier this month, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar went to London to attend a conference of foreign ministers from 7 countries. However, he could not attend the meeting himself after some members of the Indian delegation were infected with Kovid-19. .
