New Delhi. Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi (Narendra Modi) will attend the Digital Summit today. During this time, the two countries are expected to sign nine agreements in different areas. Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen has said this. Earlier, Bangladesh Foreign Ministry officials had said that four MoUs would be signed between the two sides.
The two leaders will also witness the opening of the old rail route- Chilahati-Haldibari railroad once after 55 years.
