Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is holding a bilateral meeting with her Indian counterpart Narendra Modi to discuss ways to take the relations between Bangladesh and India to the next trajectory.
The bilateral meeting began after 11:30am (local time) at Hyderabad House in New Delhi.
Earlier, a tete-a-tete was held between the two leaders just before the meeting.
The two sides at the meeting are likely to give much importance to trade and connectivity issues apart from focusing on all bilateral issues, an official said.
The water-sharing of common rivers, Rohingya repatriation and investment issues are also likely to be discussed during the bilateral meeting between the two leaders.
Issues like bringing down border killings to a zero level, combating regional terrorism, anti-dumping, enhancing cooperation in energy and water sharing will also be discussed during the meeting.
A total of 13 bilateral instruments, including 11 Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs), are on the table to be signed and exchanged in the presence of the two prime ministers.
Hasina and Modi will also jointly inaugurate some projects.
The bilateral meeting will be followed by lunch at the Hyderabad House.
