"Our relation has reached at its height and we want to resolve all our problems through understanding. Although maximum issues have been solved, water-sharing still remains a sensitive one and we want a common basin management system for sharing of waters of common rivers," Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali said here.
He said Bangladesh was in favour of a 'win-win situation' for equitable share of the common rivers as the country was facing the crisis of water and the rivers were drying up.
"This is also a fact that whatever water we get, we cannot make proper utilisation. We want a better understanding for use of water and a common basin management system can help both the countries," he said, reiterating that the relations between the two countries have touched a new horizon.
"Indian President Pranab Mukherjee has said that since 1974, the relations between our two countries are the best now. It is the golden era of India-Bangladesh relation," said Ali, former Foreign Secretary of Bangladesh.
To a question, Ali said Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had already expressed her keenness to restore all communication channels that existed between the two countries before the Indo-Pak War in 1965, besides creating new points.
