"The meeting was successful. Most of the subjects we raised have been considered. Now we just have to talk about the territories of Terai and Dooars. This would be also taken up in the political level meeting," he said.

He also informed that those issues, which could not be addressed or resolved at this meeting, would be again taken up in the next official tripartite meet.

"All those topics on which we could not come to any possible solution, these would be again taken up in the next political level meeting. The next tripartite level official meeting is going to be held on September 7," he added.
