India has expressed its wish to be part of the twin events of the celebration of 50 years of Bangladesh's independence, and the 100th birth anniversary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke about it at a meeting with President Abdul Hamid in New Delhi, reports UNB. 

"It will have a global impact," he said. "It will also play a positive role in strengthening the bilateral and multilateral relationship [between Bangladesh and India]."

The two leaders also discussed the Rohingya issue and the settlement of the Teesta River deal.

President Abdul Hamid flew to India on May 29, to attend Modi's swearing-in ceremony. He returned home on Friday.
