PM calls on Pranab Mukherjee

NEW DELHI, April 9, 2017 (BSS) - Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina paid a courtesy call on Indian President Pranab Mukherjee at Rashtrapati Bhaban here this evening.

PM's press secretary Ihsanul Karim said they discussed various matters relating to bilateral interests including the decisions agreed by the two countries at yesterday's talks between Sheikh Hasina and Narendra Modi.

The Indian president said he was very much touched personally with the gesture of Sheikh Hasina as she had taken the trouble to visit India to convey her compassion after demise of his wife Suvra Mukherjee.

The premier thanked Pranab Mukherjee for his wholehearted support to Bangladesh's War of Liberation.

They also reminisced the memories which both their families shared during Sheikh Hasina's exile life in India after the assassination of Bangabandhu in 1975, the press secretary said.

Indian President praised Sheikh Hasina's constant efforts to take forward Bangladesh and establish the relations between the two counties on a solid foundation.

Later tonight, Sheikh Hasina will join a dinner to be hosted in her honour by the Indian President.
