Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, on Saturday, called on Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and discussed bilateral issues of mutual interest, including the menace of terrorism.

Singh, who is on a three-day visit to Bangladesh, had arrived in Dhaka on Friday.

“It is possible to uproot militancy and terrorism if all the countries in the region join their hands,” Singh told Hasina.

The Indian Home Minister also praised PM Hasina for her efforts in countering terror.

PM Hasina said that Bangladesh and India have so far settled several outstanding issues, including the land and boundary agreement, through dialogue.

“We expect that the other issues will be sorted out through talks as well,” she said.

PM Hasina reiterated Bangladesh’s stand of not allowing its soil to be used by terrorists to carry out their activities against any other country.  During his visit, Singh will co-chair the 6th India-Bangladesh home minister-level talks tomorrow along with his Bangladeshi counterpart Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal.

Later in the day, Rajnath Singh also inaugurated Indian Visa Application Centre.
