My India visit was short but fruitful, Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said her visit to India was short but fruitful.

The visit was short but very fruitful. I think this visit will play a very pivotal role in strengthening the existing excellent relations between India and Bangladesh, she was quoted as saying by Dhaka Tribune while she was addressing a press conference.

Speaking on the visit, she further said: During the visit, the main topic of discussion with the Indian leadership was to formulate a vision on how the two newly-elected governments can take the cooperative relationship further.

We discussed ways and means of mutual cooperation and engagement between the two countries. We have agreed to cooperate wholeheartedly for the welfare of our two countries and people, she said.

Hasina visited India on a State Visit last week.

Hasina visited India at the invitation of her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

It was her second visit to the neighbouring country this month.

She visited New Delhi earlier in June to attend the oath-taking ceremony of Modi who returned to power in the worlds largest democracy for third straight term.

This was the first bilateral visit of any head of the government to India since Modi-government returned to power after winning the general polls which were held this year in robust seven phases.

Hasina said she invited Modi to visit Bangladesh.
