New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday met his Bangladesh counterpart Sheikh Hasina and focused on issues of mutual interest. "PM @narendramodi warmly welcomed Bangladesh PM #SheikhHasina on her visit to India. The leaders have met for the second time in 10 days exemplifying the strength of India-Bangladesh ties," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.
