B'desh media welcomes inking of 'historic treaties' with India

world Updated: Jan 12, 2010 21:02 IST

Bangladeshi media on Monday gave prominent coverage to the inking of "historic treaties" between India and Bangladesh during Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's landmark visit to New Delhi which they said would push the bilateral ties to a new plane.

Bangladesh promised not to allow its territory to be used for terror against India as they signed three agreements to jointly combat the menace while New Delhi announced a USD one-billion line of credit to Dhaka.

The significant Line of Credit offered by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during talks with his Bangladesh counterpart marked the highest one-time grant by India to any country.

Mainstream Bangladeshi newspapers carried special editorials and analysis on the future course of Indo-Bangladesh ties.

The Janakantha newspaper carried a banner headline titled 'Historic Treaties' to describe the inking of the three agreements and two MoU between the two neighbours.

The Jugantor carried its lead report titled "Three agreements with India: Fruitful Hasina-Manmohan talks", a day after it headlined its main report, saying "Possibilities of changed course in relations".

The Daily Star expressed the hope that the visit would take bilateral ties "to a new plane".

It hoped the visit "will see a change in bilateral relations between our two countries that were marked by suspicion and acrimony".
