India - Bangladesh - Nepal

NEPAL, BANGLADESH RAISE WITH INDIAN STATE OF BENGAL’S DECISION TO HALT TRADE

Nepal and Bangladesh have raised with India, the West Bengal government’s decision to halt cross-border trade through its territory on the grounds that movement of trucks might spread Covid-19 infection in the state. The problem for India has been compounded because Bangladesh has continued to provide transit facility for goods to landlocked northeast. The issue for Dhaka is acute as it requires goods, including food items, for the Ramadan season. Nepal and Bhutan’s bilateral trade goes through different border crossings, but a good chunk goes through Jaigaon (West Bengal, for Bhutan) and Panitanki (West Bengal, for Nepal). As far as Bangladesh is concerned, bulk of India’s road-based trade goes through West Bengal. (ICE NEW DELHI)
