Earlier, PM Hasina emphasised the importance of New Delhi-Dhaka ties and stated that she is always happy to visit India, particularly because of its contribution to the liberation war.

She also praised the two countries' civilization ethos and linkages, saying that the youths of both India and Bangladesh need to interact more closely and connect to their shared history because they are future leaders, and leaders across borders must work in close collaboration as our leaders have done in the past.

Sheikh Hasina congratulated the Government and people of India on the successful completion of the 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' as India celebrated 75 years of independence during a press conference at Hyderabad House.

She also thanked the Indian government for its warm hospitality to her and her delegation and expressed her best wishes as India works to achieve the resolutions made for 'Aatmanirbhar (self-reliance) Bharat.'

In an official statement, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina emphasised the discussion she had with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and stated that the meeting was held in the spirit of close friendship and cooperation.

Both parties discussed a wide range of bilateral issues, with a focus on potential ways to accommodate each other's priorities in a mutually beneficial manner.

According to the official statement, we discussed connectivity, trade and commerce, investment, water resource management, security, border management, and lines of credit, among other things.

Bilateral relations between the two countries known to be role models

Sheikh Hasina reiterated that India is Bangladesh's most important and closest neighbour, and that bilateral relations between the two countries are known to be role models for neighbourhood diplomacy. She also recalled that the two countries had resolved many outstanding issues in the spirit of friendship and cooperation, and she stated that all outstanding issues, including the Teesta Water Sharing Treaty, would be resolved as soon as possible.

Bangladesh-India ties are anchored in shared history and culture, mutual trust and respect, longstanding friendship, and continued cooperation, Sheikh Hasina said during the official briefing, adding that she appreciates PM Modi's visionary leadership, which continues to provide added momentum to bilateral relations between India and Bangladesh.

Bangladeshi PM Sheikh Hasina will have an engagement with the business forums of Bangladesh and India, the official statement read. India and Bangladesh share a strong partnership over the last 50 years and both countries continue to work on an increasingly wide range of issues of mutual interest.

"I and Prime Minister Modiji agreed to work together, in the spirit of friendship and partnership, for the prosperity and development of our two countries and in the region," Sheikh Hasina said during the press briefing and said that Bangladesh and India are committed to enhancing the collective welfare of citizens of both sides as the two countries are bounded by 54 common rivers and four thousand kilometres border.
