United States embassy thanks PM Hasina for speaking with President Trump”

But the prime minister herself told Reuters that: "He just asked how is Bangladesh?". It was a very short meeting.

However, Swaraj and Hasina did not discuss the "burning" issue of Rohingya refugees during their meeting, said a statement by the Ministry of External Affairs.

Prime Minister Sheikh Haisna said all the organisations of the United Nations will help Bangladesh, but the registration of the Rohingya refuges will be done by Bangladesh Army.

"Warm encounter reflecting our historical and cultural ties. Courtesy call on Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina by EAM", he said in a tweet after the meeting.

Hasina also said she wanted to see more global political pressure on Myanmar so that it allows the Rohingya to return to their homeland. "The issue of Rohingya did not come up during the meeting for discussion", he said.

Meanwhile, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) head Filippo Grandi expressed his willingness to help Bangladesh on the issue of Myanmar refugee problem.

Rohingya after the army attack in Myanmar are fleeing the country seeking shelter and safety in neighbouring countries.

According to the United Nations reports around 410,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar's Rakhine state into Bangladesh since August 25.

While briefing reporters, Foreign Secretary M Shahidul Haque said Trump also told Hasina that the USA will see how the Rohingya refugee problem can be resolved.

Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque said the Indian Minister for External Affairs will visit Bangladesh on October 23-24 to attend the India-Bangladesh joint commission meeting. Kumar said that since the Dokhlam dispute was already resolved, there was no need to bring up the matter during the meet. "EAM @SushmaSwaraj meets with Bhutanese PM @tsheringtobgay in NY".

"We had a great discussion on women's entrepreneurship, the upcoming #GES2017 and workforce development in the U.S. and India", Ivanka said in a tweet after the meeting. The controversial Doklam did not figure in talks, while both Ms Swaraj and her Bhutanese counterpart discussed development projects that India was sponsoring.
