Modi reassures working with PM Hasina

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he will work with his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina to further expand and deepen the ties between the two countries. 

"I look forward to continue working with PM Sheikh Hasina to further expand and deepen our ties," he tweeted on Monday as the two countries celebrate ‘Maitri Diwas’ (Friendship Day). 

Just 10 days before the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, India had recognized Bangladesh on December 6, 1971. 

India was one of the first countries to establish bilateral diplomatic ties with independent Bangladesh. 

“Today (December 6) India and Bangladesh commemorate Maitri Diwas. We jointly recall and celebrate the foundations of our 50 years of friendship," Modi said. 

During the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bangladesh in March this year, it was decided to commemorate the 6th December as "Maitri Diwas".

Maitri Diwas has been commemorated in 18 countries around the world apart from Bangladesh and India. 

The countries are Belgium, Canada, Egypt, Indonesia, Russia, Qatar, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, Japan, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and the United States of America.

The Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA) is organizing a special event in New Delhi this afternoon. It will see participation from both countries.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will send a video message for the event.Dhaka Tribune
