Indian External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar has said relations between Bangladesh and India relations are moving in a "positive trajectory”. 

"Good to see our ties on such a positive trajectory," he said before leaving Dhaka for Kathmandu on Wednesday morning.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam and Indian High Commissioner in Dhaka Riva Ganguly Das saw him off at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 10:30am, an official said.

Jaishankar said India’s partnership with Bangladesh remains an example of what neighbours can do if they work together as two partners.

Bangladesh and India are working to find “mutually acceptable formulas” to share water from 54 shared rivers with keeping India’s commitment to resolving Teesta issue unchanged.

Wrapping up his visit, the Indian minister said he had "productive discussions" with his Bangladesh counterpart Dr AK Abdul Momen.

He said the Indian government, led by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is determined to ensure that this partnership is truly a role model in South Asia and for the world.

The Indian minister said they would like to offer all possible support to realize Bangladesh’s development agenda, which is in India’s interest as well.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Indian foreign minister met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence around 5pm. The Indian minister visited Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi-32 and paid tributes to Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by placing wreaths at his portrait.

India has been a leading development partner of Bangladesh as it has extended concessional lines of credit to the tune of around 8 billion US dollars.
