प्रधानमंत्री शेख हसीना जी के साथ यह मेरी छठी video conference है।

इतनी सरलता से, और इतनी बार, किन्हीं दो देशों के नेतृत्व के बीच में संपर्क होना, अपने आप में दर्शाता है कि दोनों देशों के बीच संबंध कितने गहरे और मजबूत हैं।

भारत और बांग्लादेश के बीच connectivity मजबूत करने की बात जब भी होती है, तो उसका सबसे बड़ा प्रेरणा स्रोत मैं प्रधानमंत्री शेख हसीना जी के vision को मानता हूँ।
