Update : 27 Feb 2024, 22:13

Indian President Droupadi Murmu today said New Delhi attaches the highest priority to its friendship with Dhaka.

She made the remarks when a 100- member youth delegation from Bangladesh called on her at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi on Tuesday. 

The Indian President also extended greetings to the youth Bangladesh delegation team, which includes government officials, doctors, teachers, artists, singers, journalists, students, and others.

India and Bangladesh, Murmu said, share a unique bond, founded on their history, culture, and sacrifices and India is proud to have been a friend and partner in the Liberation War of Bangladesh and continues to share the development journey with Bangladesh.

“We must preserve and nurture this spirit which inspires the unique bond between our two countries,” a statement issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan quoted her as saying.

The President said, “The relationship between India and Bangladesh is a relationship of the heart and soul. We have a deep cultural link, and a common love for art, music, cricket, and food. Our national anthems, both penned by Tagore, are a source of pride. We share love for ‘Baul’ music and the works of Kazi Nazrul Islam. Our unity and diversity are celebrated in our shared heritage.”
