While inaugurating the Bangabandhu Media Centre at the Press Club of India (PCI) in New Delhi, he said the centre would facilitate efforts to boost ties among people of the two countries, especially the journalists.

He added that the relationship between Bangladesh and India had reached a new height under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her counterpart Narendra Modi.
