Maitree Week highlighting Indo-Bangla friendship observed in Dhaka

A “Maitree Week” focusing on the friendship between Bangladesh and India concluded here on Sunday.

The week-long programme was organised in the run-up to the “Maitree Dibash” the two friendly neighbours will celebrate on Monday to mark New Delhi’s prompt diplomatic recognition of Bangladesh as an independent nation on December 6 in 1971.

As part of the Maitree Week celebrations, an event reminiscing about the road to Liberation in 1971 and events leading to Victory Day was organised at Indira Gandhi Cultural Centre (IGCC) in Dhaka.

Valiant freedom fighters shared their invaluable experiences of Bangladesh’s Liberation War and recounted important events which culminated in the Victory Day.
