News Desk: Bangladesh foreign minister AK Abdul Momen has emphasised working with India and developing a better system for water management and regulations to avoid flood damages.
‘We have to work together; we have 54 rivers that come from India to Bangladesh. And right now when I am talking, I have a devastating flood in my own constituency in Sylhet. It came from Assam and Meghalaya,’ he told WION in an interview in New Delhi on Saturday.
Momen said they would like to share their expertise and data so that they have an early warning about this sort of disaster.
‘Before Pakistan was created, we used to have floods, but not as devastating as we have now,’ he said.
The foreign minister is now in Delhi to co-chair the seventh meeting of the Joint Consultative Commission with his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar Sunday.
