B'desh PM Hasina's visit highly important to India

Dhaka [Bangladesh], Mar. 13 (ANI): Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Harsh Vardhan Shringla on Monday said that Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's visit to India is of high importance to his country.

"From the Indian side, we are giving the highest importance to the honourable Prime Minister's visit to India," Dhaka Tribune quoted the high commissioner as saying to the reporters after a meeting with Bangladesh Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque on Monday.

The Indian envoy said that Hasina has been invited by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to stay at the Rashtrapati Bhawan, where usually no head of state gets the opportunity to stay.

Shringla said this visit is very important in many aspects for both the countries as the two neighbouring countries have demonstrated cooperation in settling land and maritime boundaries within a short period of time under the leadership of both Hasina and Modi.

Bangladesh Prime Minister Hasina is expected to visit India in the first half of April. (ANI)
