On Sunday, border defence forces from India and Bangladesh engaged in discussions on infiltration and boundary disputes, among other key issues, during the second day of their annual coordination conference. Officials remarked that the four-day event, held to enhance bilateral relations, included the involvement of personnel from both the Border Security Force of India and the Border Guard Bangladesh. This conference is intended to strengthen the spirit of cooperation between the neighboring countries.

The Indian delegation, comprising 14 members and led by Ayush Mani Tiwari, IG of BSF South Bengal Frontier, met with an 11-member Bangladeshi delegation led by Brigadier General Shamim Ahmed, ADG, Region Commander of the South Western Region of Jessore.

Throughout the discussions, various mutual interests were addressed, such as joint efforts against cross-border crime, pending development in boundary regions, and measures to prevent illegal cross-border movements, the BSF stated. The talks also aim to resolve boundary disputes and enhance border management effectiveness. As per a BSF spokesperson, these conferences are crucial in promoting a secure and stable border environment, contributing to regional peace and prosperity.

The meeting coincided with recent exchanges of fire between BSF personnel and Bangladeshi cattle smugglers in Malda and Murshidabad districts of West Bengal.
