Indo-Bangla joint statement: Dhaka asks for interim deal on Teesta
Dhaka on Saturday requested New Delhi for an “interim agreement” on Teesta water as agreed upon by both the governments in January 2011, said a joint agreement issued after Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s talks with counterpart Narendra Modi in the Indian capital. According to the statement, the Bangladesh premier made the request during the official talks with Modi, who said his government was working with all stakeholders in India for an early conclusion of the agreement. The two premiers also directed officials concerned to conclude discussions on various aspects relating to sharing of waters of common rivers such as the Feni, the Manu, the Muhuri, the Khowai, the Gumti, the Dharla and the Dudhkumar, the statement said. “The prime ministers appreciated the positive steps taken in respect of Bangladesh’s proposal for jointly developing the Ganges Barrage on the Padma River in Bangladesh,” it added. The two premiers welcomed the visit of an Indian technical team to Bangladesh, establishment of a Joint Technical Sub-Group on Ganges Barrage Project and study of the riverine border in the upstream area of project. “Both leaders directed the officials concerned of the Joint Technical Sub-Group to meet soon and hoped that the matter would be further taken forward through continued engagement of both sides,” the statement said.
