Acknowledging the work done by Bangladesh for Rohingya refugees, India on March 27 said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina discussed the issue during their bilateral talks in Dhaka, and both the sides have an understanding on the refugee provided to more than a million displaced people from Myanmar's Rakhine state.
"This issue does come up and should come up.
There was an understanding between both sides that Bangladesh has done a lot to provide refuge to over a million displaced persons from Myanmar's Rakhine state," said Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla in Dhaka.
"Among the 109 ambulances that we just gifted, a few of them are for the camps where these displaced persons (Rohingya refugees) are housed," he added.
"There is very active collaboration and cooperation among India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan under BBIM group.
We spoke about Motor Vehicle Agreement that is in fairly advanced stage.
We want to take it further.
We are facilitating Bangladesi exports to both these countries via India," Harsh Vardhan Shringla further stated.
