India-B'desh foreign secretaries meet, talk terror
India is worried about the Bangladeshi link in recent terror strikes.
New Delhi: The Foreign Secretaries of India and Bangladesh met in New Delhi and terrorism was the main focus of their talks.
India is concerned about the Bangladeshi link it sees in several recent terrorist attacks on Indian soil.
Indian Foreign Secreatry Shiv Shankar Menon has urged his Bangladeshi counterpart, Mohammad Touhid Hussain to ensure that Dhaka acts against criminal elements finding sanctuary on Bangla soil.
"We are convinced that our security is interlinked and that terrorism has to be tackled resolutely," he told Hussain.
After the May 2008 Jaipur blasts, the August 2007 blasts in Hyderabad and the Mecca Masjid bombing it is clear Bangladesh is not only becoming a safe haven for the terrorists but also a hideout for insurgent groups from Northeast India, a part of the country which continues to simmer as separatist militants flex their muscle from Dhaka.
India alleges Indian insurgents based in Bangladesh are getting help from Islamic fundamentalist groups.
