Bangladesh and India begin border talks

Senior officials from India and Bangladesh are meeting in Dhaka to discuss disputes along their four-thousand-kilometre border.

The three days of talks are the first since a border clash in Boraibari in April last year in which sixteen Indian and three Bangladeshi soldiers were killed.

Border guards from the two countries exchanged fire this month over a disputed tea plantation, though no-one was injured.

The issue of cross-border crime, including smuggling, will also be discussed.
