Sonia, Hasina vow to root out terrorism

Congress president Sonia Gandhi lauded Bangladesh`s efforts to root out terrorism in the region and vowed to work with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to thwart the scourge.



Dhaka: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday lauded Bangladesh`s efforts to root out terrorism in the
region and vowed to work with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to
thwart the scourge.

"Sonia Gandhi praised Bangladesh initiatives to combat
terrorism and uproot militancy but said the countries in South
Asia need to join their hands to thwart its threats" as she
held a meeting with Hasina, Bangladesh premier`s press
secretary Abul Kalam Azad said.

"It`s (militancy) not problem of India or Bangladesh
alone," Azad quoted the visiting UPA chairperson as saying.

During a one-to-one meeting, both the leaders agreed
that "due to its gravity and manifestation" it was not
possible by a single country to work against terrorism and
militancy.
Azad said Hasina called terrorism a major threat to
the sustainable development of the regional nations as the two
leaders met on the sidelines of an international conference on
autism here.
Both the leaders, he said, echoed similar sentiment of
working together to prevent terrorism and militancy saying
that Bangladesh and India were against all sorts of terrorism
and militancy that hindered development process of the
countries.
