Sushma Swaraj to Visit Bahrain Tomorrow


External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj will pay a two-day state visit to Bahrain from July 12 to 13, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) announced on Thursday.

She will co-chair the second high joint commission meeting with her Bahraini counterpart Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa on Saturday.

Later, Swaraj will inaugurate a new chancellory complex and will address a gathering to the Indian community residing there.

On Sunday, she will have a series of meetings with the Bahraini political leadership. Two to three agreements are expected to be signed during the visit.

Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, “This visit will provide an opportunity to not only cement a strong relationship with Bahrain to identify new areas of cooperation between the two sides. There are 3,50,000 Indians living in Bahrain and 3,000 Indian-owned joint ventures.”

Last month, Swaraj undertook a week-long four-nation visit to Italy, France, Luxembourg and Belgium.
