New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said India and Bangladesh should fight together “terrorism and fundamentalist forces” that attack mutual trust between the two countries.

Modi said these things after bilateral talks with Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina, who made a strong pitch for early conclusion of the Teesta water sharing agreement.

PM Modi said, “Today we emphasized on partnership to fight against terrorism and radicalization. In line with the spirit of the year 1971, it is necessary that we fight together against such forces, who want to break trust in each other.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who visited India, announced at Hyderabad House in Delhi that an agreement has been reached between the two countries on the sharing of the waters of the Kushiyara river. There has been no statement regarding the distribution of water.

Modi noted that 54 rivers pass through the borders of India and Bangladesh and are linked to the livelihoods of the people of both the countries for centuries.
