India, Bangla to discuss bilateral issues NEW DELHI, Sept 2 A range of bilateral issues, including presence of Indian insurgents in Bangladesh, will be discussed during the visit of Foreign Minister Dipu Moni here from Monday. India and Bangladesh will also hold in-depth discussions on several bilateral issues including security, trade, connectivity between the two countries and investment, officials said.
New Delhi has already asked Bangladesh to deport ULFA leader Anup Chetia, whose jail term is going to end soon, as it is of the view that his deportation would be a major confidence-building measure at a time when the two countries are working to strengthen their ties.
Bangladesh is yet to respond but India is hopeful that it would accede to the request considering the new governments resolve to root out terrorism, they said.
Monis visit comes ahead of that of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who is expected to travel to India later this year.
Besides holding talks with External Affairs Minister S M Krishna, Moni will also meet other senior ministers here. PTI
