She will visit UAE from November 16-19, he said, reports UNB. 

"Two bilateral cooperation documents and a protocol will be signed during the visit," the foreign minister said while briefing reporters at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the prime minister’s upcoming visit.

Dr Momen also said the prime minister will visit Kolkata on November 22 to watch the Bangladesh-India Test match.
