India and Bangladesh are two separate countries bonded by cooperation and understanding, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday.

Modi, who was in Santiniketan to attend the convocation ceremony of the Visva Bharati University, shared the dais with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and the university Vice Chancellor Sabujkoli Sen.

“India and Bangladesh are two separate countries, bonded by cooperation and understanding. Be it culture or public policy, the people of the two countries get to learn a lot from each other,” the prime minister said.

One such example is Bangladesh Bhavan, Modi asserted.

Modi, who is the ‘acharya’ or chancellor of the central university, inaugurated the Bangladesh Bhavan, a “symbol of cultural ties between India and Bangladesh”, with Hasina.

The Bhavan has been constructed by Bangladesh in the campus.
