Bangladesh has displayed a new diplomatic image of integrating the neighboring countries to ink deal for common interest in the recently ended SAARC summit.

Bangladesh has pressed at the last moment for energy cooperation and finally realised it which will benefit all the SAARC countries.

Moreover, several Bangladesh proposals have been incorporated in the ‘Kathmandu declaration’ at the end of the SAARC summit.

Migration, blue economy and post-2015 development agenda in the 36-point SAARC declaration were Bangladesh’s proposals.

The two day 18th SAARC summit was held in Nepal between October 26 and October 27.

At the sidelines, honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina held crucial bilateral meetings with heads of different SAARC states including her India counterpart Narendra Modi.

During the meeting, Sheikh Hasina wanted to know about the progress of the land boundary agreement and Teesta water sharing issue. In turn, Narendra Modi said that India is making strong efforts to resolve the issues quickly and mentioned that there is a consensus being made on the matters.

On terrorism, both the leaders reiterated their firm commitment to contain the menace.

The Indian Prime Minister said the Joint Parliamentary Committee of India would submit a report on the land boundary agreement and then the report would be discussed in both houses of Indian parliament — Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
