Bridging river rift between India-Bangladesh

Bangladeshi prime minister has vowed to resolve dispute over sharing of Teesta waters.

    The Teesta river runs 315km through parts of India and Bangladesh; a lifeline for millions of people that remains at the heart of a long-standing dispute between the two countries.

    Bangladesh accuse its neighbour of crippling their economy and their way of life by using a dam to halt the water from flowing downstream.

    Now the Bangladeshi Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, has pledged to make  progress and sign a deal before the end of her term in 2014.
