Law Minister Moudud Ahmed yesterday called on India to win the confidence of its neighbours by resolving problems with them through bilateral talks.

"In order to take South Asia to a strong position, India has to win the confidence of the smaller countries", he told the visiting eight-member parliamentary delegation from India.

The team, led by Bijoy Krishna Handique, State Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Defence and Deputy Chief Whip of India, called on Moudud at his secretariat office.

Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Veena Sikri was present.

The law minister said a coordinated water management strategy had to be formulated between India and Bangladesh for the optimum use of water of common rivers.
