Indian Army chief General MM Naravane is on a 5-day visit to the neighbouring country, Bangladesh. Soon after his arrival, General Naravane paid tribute to the fallen heroes of the 1971 Liberation War by laying a wreath at the altar of Shikha Anirban in Dhaka Cantonment. He was welcomed with a guard of honour at Senakunj.
The visit of General Naravane, who is here at the invitation of his Bangladeshi counterpart General Aziz Ahmed, comes in less than two weeks after PM Modi travelled to Bangladesh.
“General MM Naravane COAS interacted with Air Vice Marshal M Abul Bashar, Acting Chief of Air Staff of Bangladesh Air Force and discussed matters on bilateral defence cooperation,” the ADG PI said in a tweet.
He will also visit various military stations in Bangladesh. The visit of the Indian Army chief will further strengthen the close and fraternal ties existing between the Armed Forces of the two countries, the Indian High Commission said. The Army chief is also scheduled to visit the Mujibur Rahman memorial museum in Dhanmondi where he will pay homage to the founding father of Bangladesh.
