Bangladesh, Malaysia to sign MoU on defence training

Jul 13, 2018
Bangladesh and Malaysia are preparing to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on defence training and technical cooperation.
 
The announcement was made after a meeting of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and visiting Malaysian Defence Minister Mohamad bin Sabu at the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) in Dhaka on Thursday, the state-run news agency BSS reported.
 
Hasina's Press Secretary Ihsanul Karim said Hasina and the Malaysian minister discussed the issues of cooperation in defence sector, Rohingya and matters of other mutual interests.
 
The Press Secretary said Hasina laid importance on continued international pressure on Myanmar to take back Rohingyas. An island is being developed to relocate the Rohingyas to help them to live in a better condition.
 
Mohamad bin Sabu appreciated the gesture of Bangladesh for giving shelter to a large number of displaced Rohingyas, saying his country would continue the support for repatriation of the Myanmar nationals to their homeland.
 
Hasina also briefed the Malaysian minister on Bangladesh's progress in the agriculture sector, success of research in producing saline and drought-tolerant rice and archiving self-sufficiency in food production.
