Bangladesh and India Sign Security Agreements


India and Bangladesh have agreed on several new security initiatives during a visit by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to New Delhi.

The Bangladeshi prime minister told reporters in the Indian capital that the two countries' main enemy is poverty and they are working together to eliminate the problem.

The prime ministers signed three agreements on cross-border terrorism and crime that should make it easier for India to extradite wanted criminals and militants.

In the past, India has claimed that militant groups operating near its border with Bangladesh flee across the border to escape capture.

The countries also announced new agreements for additional economic assistance for improving Bangladesh's infrastructure and electrical power grid.

Indian officials praised what they say are improved ties with Bangladesh in the year since Sheikh Hasina came to power.

India's Foreign Ministry called her trip a "historic opportunity to build a new and forward-looking relationship."
