Bangladeshi Prime Minister Khaleda Zia has wrapped up a three-day visit to India by appealing for the dismantling of trade barriers.
She expressed concern about the trade imbalance that heavily favors India. She urged India to allow preferential duty-free access for Bangladeshi exports.
During the visit, the two countries also pledged to join forces against terrorism.
The Bangladeshi prime minister met Tuesday with her Indian counterpart, Manmohan Singh, and the sides signed agreements aimed at expanding trade ties and preventing drug trafficking.
An Indian spokesman said the leaders also pledged to implement a South Asia Free Trade Agreement and open a rail link between the two countries. He said they also discussed disputes over sharing water from common rivers.
The trip was Ms. Zia's first visit to India since she took office in 2001.
