Bangladesh wants enhanced air connectivity with Bhutan for both countries to reap economic benefits, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has said.

Dr Momen met visiting Bhutanese Prime Minister Dr Lotay Tshering at his hotel's presidential suite on Tuesday and discussed the issues.

The foreign minister said the entire region had a huge potential for development, and the development would be possible if the best use of that was ensured.

"That can be done through connectivity and partnership," he added.

Asked whether any agreement will be signed, Dr Momen said the Bhutanese prime minister came to join his friends and the people of Bangladesh in the celebrations of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s birth centenary and Bangladesh’s golden jubilee of independence.

The Bhutanese prime minister considers Bangladesh as his second home where he embraced his dream of becoming a doctor and learned the traits of saving lives.
