Lauds Bangladesh for not giving room for transnational terrorists

The U.S. has acknowledged Bangladesh’s successes in the ‘anti-terror’ efforts and said the government’s counter-terrorism measures have made it difficult for transnational terrorists to use the country’s territory.

‘The Country Reports on Terrorism 2013,’ submitted to the U.S. Congress on Thursday, said : “The government of Bangladesh has demonstrated political will and firm commitment to combat domestic and transnational terrorist groups.”

India-Bangladesh relationship had provided “openings for transnational threats,” but the present Awami League-led government had “demonstrated strong interest” in regional cooperation to fight terrorism, the report said.
