Defence Minister arrives in Dhaka on Wednesday on a two-day visit.

This is the first ever visit of an Indian Defence Minister to Bangladesh.

The Defence Ministry says Parrikar will meet with top leadership in order to firm up defence initiatives ahead of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's visit to Delhi later in next month.

The Defence Minister is also scheduled to meet President on Wednesday followed by a meeting with the Prime Minister's Security Advisor later in the day.

He is scheduled to visit Military Academy in tomorrow and on his return to Dhaka have talks with Prime Minister Hasina who also holds the defence portfolio.
