Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has urged India to open the two-kilometer Swadhinata Sarak (Independence Road) in Mujibnagar on Bangladesh-India border to help Indian tourists to visit the historic place.

He made the request when the outgoing Indian High Commissioner Riva Ganguly Das made a farewell call on Bangladesh Foreign Minister at state guesthouse Padma in the city on Wednesday.

Momen laid importance on timely completion of all the projects being implemented under the Indian Line of Credit (LOC).

The Foreign Minister also urged India to reopen all the land ports which are closed due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Momen thanked Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar for successful completion of the sixth Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) meeting held virtually on Tuesday.

The outgoing High Commissioner also congratulated the Bangladesh Foreign Minister on successful completion of the JCC meeting.

The Foreign Minister expressed satisfaction over the progress on bilateral issues in the JCC and wished the High Commissioner best of luck for her next assignment in New Delhi.
