India and Bangladesh will discuss issues related to cross-border terrorist activities and joint patrolling of the frontiers as top officers of the border guarding forces of both the countries begin their four-day meeting here on Sunday.

While Border Security Force (BSF) Director General Raman Srivastava will lead the Indian side, Major General Mainul Islam is leading a 19-member team of Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) officials for the Border Coordination Conference here.

The talks will focus on preventing cross-border terrorist movement, trafficking of women, children and contraband, joint management of border pillars, fencing within 150m of the International border and smuggling among others, a senior BSF officer said.
