Bangladesh has thanked India and its Prime Minister Narendra Modi for resolving the long-standing border issue.

Parliament on Tuesday unanimously passed a motion thanking India, four days before Modi’s scheduled Dhaka visit.

India’s lower and upper houses ratified the Land Boundary Agreement (LBA) bill last month clearing way for swapping enclaves with Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Cabinet on May 25 ratified the LBA protocol.

Taking part in the discussion, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina recalled how India stood by Bangladesh during the 1971 Liberation War.

“India has always stood by Bangladesh in times of need,” she said.

Leader of the Opposition Raushon Ershad and 18 other MPs took part in a discussion on the motion.

Raushon lauded the Indian prime minister and hoped other outstanding bilateral issues would be resolved as well.

The BNP, which boycotted the last general elections, has also welcomed the LBA ratification.
