Hailing Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's 'zero-tolerance' policy to deal with terrorism, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday credited decisive leadership of the former for achievements of India-Bangladesh partnership.

"Today marks golden era in India-Bangladesh ties. We thank Prime Minister Hasina for acknowledging our soldiers efforts in liberating Bangladesh from the reign of terror," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing a joint statement here.

Asserting that he is determined that fruits of cooperation between the two nations will benefit people, the Prime Minister said India is a long-standing and trusted development partner of Bangladesh.

Shaping the future of bilateral ties, Prime Minister Modi and the Bangladesh Prime Minister earlier in the day, led delegation level talks and signed 22 pacts in a wide range of bilateral relations.
