Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will be travelling to Dhaka on Nov 23 on a two-day trip, his first to Bangladesh, to join a ministerial conference of the Indian Ocean Rim Association or IORA.

Ministers from over a dozen other countries will attend the 22nd IORA Council of Ministers at Intercontinental Hotel on Nov 24, Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen said on Sunday. “It's good news.”

Bangladesh is heading the block of 23 countries for 2022-23.

Russia joined the IORA Council of Ministers in 2021 as the 10th dialogue partner.

Besides joining the IORA conference, Lavrov will hold a bilateral meeting with Momen and pay a courtesy call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
His visit comes at a time when Bangladesh, along with the rest of the world, is grappling with a global economic crisis due to the Russia-Ukraine war and the West’s sanctions on Russia, a major supplier of grains and fertiliser.

Bangladesh has also partnered with Russia for other purposes, including the South Asian country’s first nuclear power plant.

There is already a plan to construct a second nuclear power plant with atleast two reactors in the South, however, the project is on hold until the first power plant is constructed and connected to the power grid.
Constructing more reactors on existing power plant with same technology will cost us less. Isn't it?

BTW, our second NPP should come form a western company.

Bar external pressure, If the Russians do a good job at both constructing the NPP and bringing our people up to speed with running the place by themselves (starting 24 months after the NPP goes online) then I don't see the GoB awarding anyone else the second NPP work.
