In a historic moment, India and Bangladesh on Saturday ratified the Land Boundary Agreement. India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bangladeshi counterpart Sheikh Hasina presided over the ceremony of exchange of instruments of ratification of the land swap.

“History is made as the Instruments of Ratification of the Land Boundary Agreement are exchanged,” Modi tweeted.

Under the agreement, each country will take over most of the enclaves on its territory and the residents will have the choice either to stay where they are, or move to the other side of the border.

The land dispute between the two neighbouring countries has remained a contentious issue for several years.
