Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh says his government will resolve all disputes involving India's porous border with Bangladesh in line with deals signed a day ago.
Singh's two-day official visit to Bangladesh ends Wednesday.
The two countries on Tuesday signed a number of deals and protocols to resolve issues involving enclaves and the undemarcated 2,545-mile (4,096-kilometer) border. There are 111 Indian enclaves inside Bangladesh and 51 Bangladeshi ones inside India with a combined population of 51,000.
Singh said Wednesday the enclave issue would be resolved "without dislocating people."
Enclave residents have been compared to stateless people as no country provides services or takes responsibility for them.
