Bangladesh PM Shiekh Hasina may come this December

CAVELOSIM, GOA (TIP): Indian and Bangladeshi officials are working on a plan that could see Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina visit New Delhi this December.

Bangladesh foreign secretary Shahidul Haque told reporters that Hasina may visit India on a bilateral tour in December. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had heaped praises on Hasina’s counter-terror initiatives at a meeting between the two leaders during the BRICS-BIMSTEC meet on Sunday. The move is seen bolstering efforts by the Modi government to build a strong front against terror activities in the region.

“The two sides are working on this visit,” Haque said, even as the much anticipated Teesta water sharing deal between the two nations is yet to see progress. (PTI)
