Sushma Swaraj to meet Bangladesh PM in Dhaka today
"We have also supported implementation of the recommendations contained in the Kofi Annan led Special Advisory Commission report", Swaraj said. "India for its part has committed to providing financial and technical assistance for identified projects to be undertaken in Rakhine state in conjunction with local authorities".
The talks lasted for 45 minutes during which Swaraj said that being the next-door neighbour, India wanted to see a continued democratic process in Bangladesh.
Although it was not clear whether the issue of illegal migration from Bangladesh figured during the 4th Joint Consultative Commission meet, Swaraj said India focused on the progress in our bilateral relationship. Myanmar doesn't recognise Rohingya as an ethnic group and insists that they are Bangladeshi migrants living illegally in the country. Bangladeshi Foreign Minister urged India to play a greater role by "exerting sustained pressure" on Myanmar to find a peaceful solution to the Rohingya crisis.
Both the leaders reviewed various aspects of bilateral relations.

India and Bangladesh today discussed the common challenge of terrorism and resolved to fight the scourge together even as New Delhi reaffirmed its status as a reliable development partner of Dhaka.
"It's a big burden for Bangladesh, and how long will Bangladesh bear this?" she said, referring to the exodus of the forcibly displaced people who fled the violence in their homeland and took shelter in neighbouring Bangladesh.
Sushma said India attaches the "utmost importance" to its relations with Bangladesh.
"We are determined to protect our societies from threat of ideologies of hate, violence and terror by adopting a zero tolerance policy and a comprehensive approach in fighting violent extremism and terrorism at all levels", she added.
"We are confident that this credit will be invaluable to Bangladesh as it pursues its developmental priorities, especially in the areas of infrastructure development", Swaraj said.
