No problem 
along border

The visiting Indian home minister, Rajnath Singh, has said that there is no problem along the Indo-Bangladesh frontier. “We have discussed various bilateral issues, including the border issues, fruitfully,” the minister told reporters after the sixth home ministerial-level meeting between Bangladesh and India at the Bangladesh Secretariat yesterday.

Rajnath Singh led a 15-member delegation, while home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal led its 16-member delegation during the two-hour-long home ministerial-level parleys.

After the talks, Khan told reporters that the Indian home minister agreed to help repatriation of forcibly displaced Myanmarese citizens, known as Rohingyas, to their homeland. “They want to resolve the Rohingya crisis,” he said.

Khan disclosed that various bilateral issues like regional security, border issues, terrorism and militancy, human trafficking, arms and drug smuggling, intelligence sharing and transfer of prisoners were discussed during the talks.

“The Indian home minister assured us that all the problems, if they have occurred, would be resolved through discussion,” he said.

“India will provide the necessary assistance to us under any situation, if needed,” he added.

“We have also discussed to bring back the killers of the Bangabandhu murder case and our counterpart will help in this regard,” he stated.

The home minister said they have signed the ‘Amendment of Revised Travel Agreement (RTA)’ between the two countries to obtain five years’ multiple visas for the Bangladeshi freedom fighters and senior citizens to visit the friendly country.

He also said they have signed a ‘Memorandum of Cooperation’ between Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, Hyderabad and Bangladesh Police Academy, Sardah in Rajshahi for capacity-building of the police personnel. “We have also discussed making the student and medical visa process easier,” he added. Before attending the home ministerial-level talks, the Indian home minister visited the Dhakeshwari Temple in the city and offered his prayers there.

Earlier, Singh visited the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in the capital and paid his tributes to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. He placed a wreath on the portrait of Bangabandhu in front of the museum and signed the visitors’ book of the museum.

“I pay my homage to the late Bangabandhu and his martyred family. He will be always remembered as a freedom fighter not only in Bangladesh but throughout the world,” the Indian minister wrote in the visitors’ book.

“Visited Bangabandhu Museum and paid tributes to the great leader and father of the nation of Bangladesh, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. Deeply moved to see the site where he & his family members were martyred (sic),” the Indian home minister said in a Twitter message.
