Teesta accord unlikely during Bangladesh PM’s visit

New Delhi, April 6 (IANS) Though a host of bilateral agreements are expected to be signed during Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s visit to India this weekend, a key agreement on Teesta waters about which there has been wide speculation is unlikely to be inked, it is reliably learnt.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a bilateral summit with Hasina on Saturday but no forward movement is expected on the Teesta waters agreement.

Both India and Bangladesh, as good neighbours, have moved forward on other sectors like power, investment and security but the Teesta waters issue remains a vexed problem.

Agreements on defence cooperation and civil nuclear cooperation are expected to be signed among 25 to 30 agreements during Hasina’s four-day visit starting from April 7.
