Abu Dhabi: 

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today held bilateral talks with her counterparts from Bangladesh and the Maldives and exchanged views on the regional situation.

After addressing the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting in Abu Dhabi, Ms Swaraj held talks with Maldives Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid and her Bangladeshi counterpart AK Abdul Momen.

Ms Swaraj and Mr Shahid discussed follow up to Maldives President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih's visit to India in December last year and also exchanged views on the regional situation, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

During her meeting with Bangladesh Foreign Minister Mr Momen, the two leaders discussed issues of bilateral importance.

Ms Swaraj was the first Indian minister to address the meeting of the 57 Islamic countries.

India's participation came despite strong demand by Pakistan to rescind the invitation to Ms Swaraj to address the grouping which was turned down by the host UAE, resulting in Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi boycotting the plenary.
