    SUMMARY

    Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina arrived in India on Tuesday for a four-day State visit. Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed her on the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhawan, where she was greeted by a tri-services guard of honour. Interacting with reporters at the Rashtrapati Bhawan, Hasina said her talks with Modi would focus on improving the condition of the people in their respective countries, poverty alleviation and economic development. She said, “our main aim is to develop the economy and fulfill the basic needs of our people. With friendship, you can solve any problem. So we always do that”.
