An extreme sense of distrust, insecurity and perceived domination by India has shaped Bangladesh’s foreign policy in recent years. In the light of the new political climate in Bangladesh (January 2014) and the forthcoming Parliament in India (May 2014).Who will bell the cat? It is expected that both the countries (India and Bangladesh) is looking forward to resolving some of the key bilateral contentions.
