Indian Army chief Gen M.M. Naravane on Saturday interacted with the officers of Bangladesh’s Army and witnessed an operational demonstration by the troops.

He also planted a tree in Ramu Cantonment in Cox’s Bazar to commemorate the everlasting friendship between the two Armies.

Gen. Naravane, who is in Dhaka on a five-day official tour, visited the 10 Infantry Division of the Bangladesh Army.

“General MM Naravane #COAS visited 10 Infantry Division & interacted with the Officers of #BangladeshArmy. The #COAS also witnessed an operational demonstration by the troops of the formation,” the Indian Army’s Additional Directorate General of Public Information (ADG PI) tweeted.

Ramu cantonment is the headquarter of the 10th Infantry Division of the Bangladesh Army.

Gen. Naravane on Friday paid tribute to Bangladesh’s founding father Sheikh Mujibur Rahman by visiting the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum in Dhaka.

The visit of Mr. Naravane, who is here at the invitation of his Bangladeshi counterpart Gen. Aziz Ahmed, comes less than two weeks after Prime Minister Narendra Modi travelled to the neighbouring country and met the top leadership here to strengthen the strategic ties.

The year 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between India and Bangladesh, the liberation of Bangladesh from Pakistan and the birth centenary of ‘Bangabandhu’ Mujibur Rahman.
