Sushma Swaraj visit to Bahrain

January 2016, Agreements
In Brief:


India and Bahrain have vowed to strengthen their ties in key areas like trade and counter- terrorism besides signing an agreement on the transfer of sentenced persons as External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj held “wide-ranging” talks with her Bahraini counterpart.

Ms. Swaraj, who was for a two-day visit to attend the first ministerial meeting of the India-Arab League Cooperation Forum, held “wide-ranging” discussions with Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa.
After the talks, the two leaders signed the agreement on the transfer of sentenced persons. According to the pact, once an expatriate has been sentenced in the other country, the sentence can be served in the country of origin.
 “The Double Taxation Avoidance agreement was something Bahrain would like to see happen with India and India would like to see an MoU on defence cooperation with Bahrain. 
Ms. Swaraj also attended the Bahrain International Air Show at Sakhir Airbase.
On the sidelines of the air show, she called on Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and the two leaders watched India’s indigenously developed Dhruv helicopters and Tejas Light Combat Aircraft perform aerobatics in the skies.
Ms. Swaraj visited the India pavilion at the air show where the scientists gave the minister a briefing on Tejas. The Tejas flight was hailed by officials present here as a “historic event” as the country hopes to explore potential export opportunities.
