Bangladesh and Myanmar: Security Dialogue

The Foreign Ministry of Bangladesh has prepared a draft memorandum of understanding on security dialogue which has been sent to Myanmar.

The proposal includes regular meetings between Bangladesh and Myanmar under foreign office consultation, joint trade commission and defense cooperation. Non-traditional security issues like climate change, environment disaster, natural calamities, epidemic, illegal movement of people and drugs are also key priorities.

Bangladesh would like to follow the US arrangement with Myanmar, on methods for maintaining social order and national security as well as non-traditional security challenges.
