Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque on Thursday said Bangladesh is constructing monuments in memory of the martyrs of the Indian allied forces in the 1971 Liberation War on the occasion of the 50 years of independence.

He said this when the outgoing Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Riva Ganguly Das paid her farewell call on him at his ministry office in Dhaka.

Liberation War Affairs Secretary Tapan Kanti Ghosh was present during the occasion.

They discussed Bangladesh India relations, Bangladesh Liberation War and bilateral issues.

They hoped that relations between the two neighbouring countries would become stronger further in the days to come.

The minister recalled with gratitude the cooperation of the Indian government and its people extended to Bangladesh during its War of Independence.

The Indian high commissioner said Bangladesh and India are tested friends. 

Some people are out there to spread misleading information purposely to worsen the ties between the two neighbours but the Bangladesh-India relation is not so fragile, she said.

Riva said the two countries have done many bilateral works in the last several years as Bangladesh and India are working as development partners while enclaves, maritime boundary and other issues have also been resolved during that period.

The Indian envoy lauded Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s leadership in the country’s unprecedented development and women empowerment.

She requested the minister for taking up initiatives for translating the books on Bangladesh’s Liberation War into Hindi.

Riva expressed her country’s willingness to become a part of the golden jubilee celebration of Bangladesh’s independence in 2021 with its people.

Mozammel congratulated Riva on her next posting as the secretary of Indian External Affairs Ministry and extended his best wishes to her, saying the relations between the two nations will reach a different dimension during her tenure as the external affairs secretary.
