Agartala, Jan. 29 (ANI): Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali, who is on a three-day visit to Tripura, has said that ties with Indi are presently the best ever between the two nations, as a new platform based on mutual trust and confidence is in place to facilitate this.
Interacting with media at the Agartala Press Club here, Ali said both governments need to explore new project opportunities for mutual benefit.
The Bangladesh envoy said, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hassina has said she would show zero tolerance as far as terrorism is concerned, and she has kept her promise. She has not allowed any terrorist organisation to operate from Bangladesh. She has even handed over terrorists who have taken shelter in our place in the past. There has been a similar response from the Indian side as well. Nevertheless, the two borders are not very easily accessible, so, we have to remain vigilant on both sides of the border so that these kinds of activities do not recur in the future.”
“And, you have seen how sometimes some of the terrorist organisations have taken shelter also in India. They have been involved in some much publicised blasts and all these. So, we would like both sides to be more vigilant so that the basic principal on which we are building up our compromise, cooperation and future growth should not be disturbed,” he added. (ANI)
