Sheikh Hasina India Visit ‘Bangladesh is our biggest development, trade partner, Says PM Modi

Tending to a joint-public interview with Bangladesh PM Sheik Hasina uninvolved of respective discussions, PM Narendra Modi said that exchange between the two nations is quickly expanding

 India and Bangladesh on Tuesday signed a water-sharing agreement and six other pacts, including ones on space technology and scientific collaboration, aimed at boosting ties between the two countries. The agreement will benefit southern parts of Assam state in India and the Sylhet region in Bangladesh, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said. But a much-anticipated agreement on another river remained at an impasse. For decades, Bangladesh has pushed for a pact on water sharing for the Teesta River, a major transboundary river that begins in India’s Sikkim state and runs through the north of West Bengal state before flowing into Bangladesh.

As long as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is around, New Delhi and Dhaka will find a solution to all bilateral problems, including the Teesta River water-sharing issue, Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina said Tuesday. PM Narendra Modi welcomed his Bangladesh counterpart on Tuesday morning at Rashtrapati Bhavan, where she was accorded the ceremonial Guard of Honour. Speaking about her upcoming talks with PM Modi, she added: “With friendship, you can solve any problem. So, we always do that.”
