“My first visit was to India after I had taken over responsibility as Foreign Minister,” Dr Momen said.

“I expect he will soon visit Bangladesh after recovering quickly” said the Foreign Minister.

I request the people who came in contact with me in the last week, to please self isolate and get tested for COVID-19,” he tweeted.
