India is ready to resolve all unresolved issues with Bangladesh: Foreign Secretary Shringla

Indian Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla gave enough hint publicly to resolve all outstanding issues with Bangladesh soon. Mr Shringla was speaking on Friday in a webinar organised by the Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA), a subsidiary organisation of the Ministry of External Affairs.

Foreign Secretary was speaking for the first time after his two-day visit to Dhaka recently. While choosing not to mention the name of the country and the issues, in a language couched in diplomatic intricacies, he said: “We see a lot of opportunities in our immediate neighbourhood. There are also challenges.”

He asserted:“We will work appropriately to resolve these.” Then he politely reminded in his own style ,”it must be noted ,that our capacities and resources are growing and we will always be prepared to adopt the necessary strategies and the tactics as required,.”

For a long time Bangladesh is expecting a just resolution of the Teesta water sharing agreement. It is not happening just because of the internal political problem of India. At the same time South Block is conscious of the fact that it cannot be delayed now for the emerging new situation on the geo-political map.

While explaining in detail the vision of Indian diplomacy during the pandemic Corona, Mr Shringla emphasised that, the fundamental orientation of India’s policy remains Neighborhood First.

“We have demonstrated the priority accorded to neighbors in South Asia at the highest levels. This was evident during the Covid crisis. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first regional engagement of Covid was with leaders of South Asia at the highest level.” He reminded the audience that his first visit “after the pandemic was to neighbor and close friend Bangladesh”.

On this occasion, he told the audience that in the coming year India is going to play a major role in the world stage. India will be member of Security Council in 2021, marking the 75th year of Independence and within two years will be President of G-20 countries. He said,” we will hold the Presidencies of BRICS and Shanghai Cooperation . All this are recognition of enhanced global standing and also provides opportunity for us to convey our perceptions ,our experience, and our priorities- not just for ourselves but for the shared world.

They better not cancel teesta project. Let this bitches dwell in regret

I would be very disappointed, If they cancel this project.


Even If India go above and beyond and give us an unfair share of water (unfair to them, which they won't) the good it'll do will still not come close to the good this project will do for the North Bengal populace and the place itself.


North Bengal is the poorest and most neglected region of Bangladesh, this project will change that, those people deserve it, for far too long the government has ignored their needs and wants.

Indian open neighborhood diplomacy vis-a-vis Bangladesh will remain unchanged from its "Policy of bully thy neighbor, insult it at every opportunity and call its people parasites".

Even yesterday, a 22 year old young man was killed by Indian bullets in Chapai Nawabganj and here Secretary Harshabardhan talking about mending its relationship with BD. BD does not need India and India should look at her other neighbors instead of wasting time with Dhaka.

Indian minister Amit Shah should dismiss this civilian bureaucrat from his post for talking out of turn.

Aye Saadi, how can India complain when its own hands slap its face? MahaPravu India represents British India and we must kowtow it to receive its miser favor. Now, it is kowtowing others.
Union of India is the retarted child of British india. British India was efficient in the relm of administration , economy and military and extracting wealth from the working class. Union of india is a joke on all four mentioned fronts.

With the specter of a multi front war....India will negotiate with any neighbor it can. Bangladesh sits in a very strategically vulnerable spot for India. Bangladesh can cut off the NE. Especially if working with the PLA.

Bangladesh should push for big concessions from India or it should plan join the fray. Partition in 1947 was needed but flawed. Bangladesh should have included he entire NE portion of India. Today incorporating that region can boost Bangladesh's economic potential....tons of hydro power and shale gas potential. With Bangladesh's existing NG fields depleting, think long term.
