New Delhi:

India and Bangladesh are committed to root out terrorism, no matter from where it originates, and address other concerns like human trafficking and fake currency, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Saturday.

He made the remarks during a meeting with a Bangladesh delegation led by Minister of Disaster Management and Relief Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya who voiced Dhaka's concern over terror attacks in Pathankot and Uri.

In an apparent reference to Pakistan, Singh said India and Bangladesh have no difference of opinion on where from terrorism originates and how to eradicate it from the South Asian region, an official release said.

Thanking Bangladesh for its crackdown on Indian insurgent groups operating from its soil, Singh said both countries also have an understanding on addressing various issues of concern including human trafficking and fake currency.

Chowdhury Maya sought India's help in weather forecasting and real-time sharing of satellite imagery and remote sensing data so that the risks of disasters such as floods and cyclone can be minimized.

He also sought training for Bangladesh personnel in earthquake Rescue Operations.

The Home Minister assured India's all help and sharing of all weather inputs besides extending training facilities to Bangladesh disaster response forces at the Gujarat Institute of Disaster Management and other premier institutions.

A Bangladesh government statement said the Home Minister conveyed his appreciation for Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for strongly pursuing a policy of 'zero tolerance' towards terrorism.

India, he said, was thankful to Dhaka's firm determination not to allow its land for use by terrorists and militants, the release said.

The statement said India and Bangladesh also agreed to bolster cooperation in disaster management through sharing of each other's experience in advanced warning, evacuation, rescue and relief operation.

Chowdhury Maya is leading Bangladesh delegation to the Asian Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction being held in New Delhi.
