During their meeting, visiting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia have spoken on a mutual relationship between the two neighbouring countries.

BNP Standing Committee Member Abdul Moin Khan briefed reporters after emerging from the meeting at Hotel Sonargaon on Sunday afternoon.

Moin Khan said they have emphasised on democracy as a prerequisite for the development which Modi envisages for the entire region.

The BNP leader said the meeting was held in a very cordial atmosphere.

Moin also said: "We told him [Modi] that the regime of a country might change, but the tie between the countries has to be permanent based on trust."

He said Khaleda Zia and Modi had a one-to-one meeting after the talks with them.

He said they told Modi that development without democracy can not help in strengthening the relationship.

"We also talked about the youth and children of the country," Moin added.

The meeting between Modi and Khaleda began at 4pm and ended at 4:45pm.

The Indian premier arrived in Dhaka on Saturday morning on a two-day official visit at the invitation of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

He received the Friends of Bangladesh Liberation War Award bestowed on former Indian prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee for the latter’s role in the Bangladesh Liberation War.

He is scheduled to deliver a speech at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in the evening.
