Joint Consultative Commission (JCC) meeting between Bangladesh and India has been held today where the two countries agreed to solve border killings.

Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen came up with the development after the virtual meeting of the JCC on Tuesday.

The foreign minister said they agreed to bring down border killing to zero level. “We don’t want any death along the frontier and it’s a shame for friendly countries like Bangladesh and India,” he added.

He added after India stop selling onions our market becomes volatile. Our golden chapter has come down due to the sudden stoppage of onion exports.

Foreign Minister Dr. Abdul Momen led the Bangladesh side while Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S Jaishankar led the Indian team at the virtual meeting.

This is the very first time Bangladesh and India hold a virtual JCC meeting due to coronavirus. The 5th JCC meeting was held in February 2019 in New Delhi.
