Kolkata: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina held a closed-door meeting with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee here on Saturday.

The chief minister later said that a "lot of issues" were discussed during the meeting. "The discussion was friendly and cordial. We discussed trade, economic ties and their improvement among other things," she said, without elaborating.

"The country (Bangladesh) is doing well in all aspects and we want them to prosper more... We want them (Bangladesh leaders) to come here all the time," Banerjee told the waiting journalists.

She said the responsibility of maintaining good relations between India and Bangladesh lied with both the countries.

Banerjee said that if the Centre and Bangladesh agreed, a 'Bangabandhu Bhavan' could come up in the city.
