(5 Oct 2019) India and Bangladesh on Saturday signed several agreements on increasing trade, investment, and improving regional connectivity.
During an agreement exchange ceremony in New Delhi, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded bilateral relations saying “India gives priority to its partnership with Bangladesh.”
His visiting Bangladeshi counterpart, Sheikh Hasina, praised ever-increasing cooperation between the countries in a wide area of sectors, including the environment and nuclear energy.
Among the agreements signed on Saturday was a memorandum of understanding on water-sharing from a disputed common river.
The Feni is shared between Bangladesh’s eastern Feni district and India’s Tripura state.
Hasina is also expected to seek support for her country’s plan to push Myanmar to take back Rohingya Muslims who fled violence and repression there in what has become one of Asia’s largest refugee crises in decades.
