India-Bangladesh friendly ties rare in world: Obaidul

The peaceful exchange of enclaves between India and Bangladesh in 2015 set an example of rare friendly relations between the two neighboring countries. And India-Bangladesh friendly ties rare in world, said Awami Leauge Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader.

He said this while speaking to media at a tripartite agreement signing ceremony on upgrading the connecting road from Ashuganj river port to Akhaura land port to a four-lane highway in a city hotel.

Representatives of Road Transport and Bridges Ministry, Indian construction company Afcons Infrastructure Limited and Exim Bank of India inked the agreement on behalf of their respective institutions.

Quader said road connectivity will further be developed through the agreement and implementation of the project.

Noting that there are some unresolved issues between the two countries, Quader said those issues will be resolved through discussions and both the both sides are working to this end. And the understanding is very good between the prime ministers of the two next-door neighbors which will pave the way to resolve those issues.
