We do expect India to show more sensibility in resolving all pending issues�.

Branding poverty as the biggest challenge not only for Bangladesh but also for South East Asian Countries, she said this could not be addressed properly if business among neighbours is flourished. �We are trying our best to maintain peace and tranquility in the country to pave the way for promoting trade and business with neghbouring countries�, she said.
