Foreign Minister Hasan Mahmud’s upcoming visit to India may discuss the Teesta Agreement, said Sehli Sabreen, spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs. He said this in the regular weekly briefing of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday afternoon.
In response to a question about China’s proposed Teesta project, Sehli said that Dhaka will consider informing Delhi if it wants to know.
The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, ‘We hope that the Teesta water sharing agreement will also be discussed among the existing issues between India and Bangladesh. It is not known at this point whether China’s proposed project on the Teesta will be discussed. Agendas are still being worked on. If India wants to know anything about this, we will consider it.’
He also said that various matters related to bilateral interests will be discussed in the foreign minister level meeting during Hasan Mahmud’s visit.
Seheli said that visa issue will also be important in the discussion along with stopping border killings.
To another question, the spokesperson said that the conflict in Rakhine is an internal matter of Myanmar. However, special attention is being paid to ensure that the country or the people are not affected in any way due to the ongoing situation.
