Bangladesh and India on Thursday highlighted their shared objective with an approach “no crime, no death” to end killing along the border, noting that every death is regrettable, reports UNB.
“Our shared objective should be no crime, no death (along the border). I’m sure if we can get it right - no crime no death - we can together address this problem effectively,” Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar told reporters at state guesthouse Padma.
He said the two countries know the problem and the problem is because of crimes and mentioned that the two countries discussed the issue at the meeting.
On the water sharing issue, the Indian Minister said all know the position of India, and that position has not changed. The two sides discussed ways to take forward the relations as the two countries are set to celebrate the 50 years of Bangladesh independence together this month.
Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen and Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar led their respective sides at a bilateral meeting held at state guesthouse Padma, taking stock of the progress of their relations.
The Indian minister arrived by a special aircraft in the morning. Foreign Minister Dr. Momen welcomed him at Bangabandhu Air Base.
