Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed hope that the visit to India will play a far-reaching role in consolidating the existing excellent relationship between Bangladesh and India.

The prime minister expressed the hope while addressing a press conference at her official residence Ganabhaban to apprise the media of the outcome of her June 21-22 state visit to India on Tuesday (June 25).

“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 said.

She said that the visit opened new avenues of cooperation for the socioeconomic development of the people of two neighbouring countries.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina went to New Delhi on June 21 on a two-day state visit to India at the invitation of her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

This was the first bilateral visit by any head of government to India after the BJP-led alliance formed its government for the third consecutive time following the Lok Sabha elections.

 Besides, this visit was Sheikh Hasina’s second trip to the Indian capital in less than 15 days, as she was among the dignitaries invited to Modi’s swearing-in ceremony on June 9.

During this Prime Minister’s visit, Dhaka and New Delhi signed 10 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) including seven new and three renewed to further consolidate the ever-growing relationship between the two neighbouring countries.
