The Seventh meeting of the India-Bangladesh Home Minister Level Talks (HMLT) was held in New Delhi. The HMLT was co-chaired by Amit Shah, Home Minister of India and Asaduzzaman Khan, Minister for Home Affairs of Bangladesh.

Both the Home Ministers reaffirmed the need to further curb the menace of trans-border crimes, and therefore agreed to the need for greater cooperation to achieve our aim of a secure border.

Both sides also reviewed the pending issues related to security and infrastructure at the borders, and agreed to take steps towards the expedited resolution of these matters.

Home Minister Shri Amit Shah also raised India’s concern regarding the illicit movement of undocumented persons across the border, with a view to find solutions to this problem especially in North East India.

The Indian Home Minister assured the Home Minister of Bangladesh of India’s continuing support for safe and speedy repatriation of the displaced Myanmar citizens sheltered in Bangladesh, for whom India has provided humanitarian assistance in four tranches since September 2017.
