Regarding long-term solution, Swaraj said, "It is clear that normalcy will only be restored with the return of the displaced persons to Rakhine state".

"Our discussion today in the course of 4th JCC meeting have been extremely useful, even more important is the atmosphere of trust and understanding in which we carried out our discussion", Swaraj said.

Swaraj further highlighted "Operation Insaniyat" launched in September by the Indian government to support Bangladesh, which has sheltered lakhs of Rohingya refugees, who have fled violence in Myanmar since August 25.

Myanmar doesn't recognise the Rohingyas as an ethnic group and insists that they are Bangladeshi migrants living illegally in the country.

India has provided relief material to Bangladesh to deal with the crisis.

This is Swaraj's second visit to Bangladesh. India, for its part, has committed to provide financial and technical assistance for identified projects to be undertaken in Rakhine state in conjunction with the local authorities.

India has supported implementation of the recommendations contained in the Kofi Annan-led Special Advisory Commission report. Zia-led Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), which had boycotted the 2014 general election, now holds no representation in the Bangladesh Parliament.

Before meeting the Bangladesh Prime Minister, Swaraj co-chaired the JCC meeting with Bangladesh Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali, where both leaders reviewed various aspects of bilateral relations.

"We are determined to protect our societies from threat of ideologies of hate, violence and terror by adopting a zero tolerance policy and a comprehensive approach in fighting violent extremism and terrorism at all levels", she added.

"Relationship with Bangladesh of utmost priority!" She last visited the country in 2014.

She is "expected to meet the Bangladeshi leadership and also interact with the representatives of leading Bangladeshi think-tanks, chambers of commerce and industry and cultural organisations", an Indian High Commission statement said.

India has extended three lines of credit amounting to Dollars 8 billion to Bangladesh so far.
