External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj called on visiting Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina here on Friday.

"First engagement for the honoured guest. EAM @SushmaSwaraj calls on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Rashtrapati Bhavan," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay tweeted.

Earlier in the day, in a special gesture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi personally received Sheikh Hasina, who arrived on a four-day official visit to India, at the airport.

This is her first bilateral visit to India in seven years after her visit in 2010.

Modi and Sheikh Hasina will hold a bilateral summit on Saturday following which over 20 agreements, including a civil nuclear agreement and two memoranda of understanding (MoUs) on defence cooperation, are expected to be signed.
