"We enjoy good cooperation with Bangladesh and this is something that is proving to be useful to both of our countries," he said pointing out that the two nations are having cooperation in all sectors including militancy and anti-insurgency operations.

Saran who called on Governor R S Mooshahary is on a tour to north-eastern states which have borders with Bangladesh.

His visit came days after Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh chief ministers visited Bangladesh to attend the India-Bangladesh Trade Fair.

According to Pankaj, Mukul addressed the trade fair and even called on the Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Elaborating on it, he said, "It was an excellent visit. They had very good meetings and a lot of ideas have emerged from those meetings".

The High Commissioner assured that the outcome of the meeting will be put into action in consultation with the Centre.

Stating that Meghalaya stands to derive the maximum benefit from the improved bilateral relations with Bangladesh, Pankaj said, "Meghalaya shares a very long border with Bangladesh. Many sectors including tourisms, education and even perhaps horticulture and agriculture produce could directly be exported". (MORE)
