New Delhi: In his first international outreach as India's Home Minister, Amit Shah, on Wednesday met Home Minister of Bangladesh Asaduzzaman Khan, a Union home ministry spokesperson said.

The two sides have embarked on "high-level delegation talks", with matters of internal security on both ends dominating discussions.

While India has earlier flagged concerns about sporadic cases of cross-border infiltration and smuggling of fake Indian currency notes (FICN), Shah's predecessor Rajnath Singh had last year met Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

"India has been discussing various bilateral issues with Bangladesh. The two countries have been in talks to discuss ways to strengthen the anti-terror mechanism between the two countries and check radicalization of youths by terrorist groups," a person familiar with the development said.
