Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has urged India to inform Bangladesh beforehand while taking any decision to stop the export of essential commodities.

“Suddenly, you (India) stopped the export of onions to Bangladesh. If you had notified us about it earlier, we could have managed to import onions from other countries.

She added that Dhaka would appreciate if New Delhi informed Bangladesh beforehand while taking any such decision in the future.

The Bangladesh premier while addressing the function at Kamal Mahal Hall of Hotel ICT Maurya also cracked a joke in Hindi which translates as saying she by now have asked her cook not to use onions in preparing food items.
