Rajnath Nath Singh visits Bangladesh High commission on country’s Armed Forces Day

Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh visited the Bangladesh High Commission on the occasion of Armed Forces Day of Bangladesh on November 22. Further, the event was organized by the Bangladesh High Commission. Rajnath Singh praised the Armed Forces of Bangladesh on behalf of the Indian Armed Forces & Government of India and wished them the very best in attaining peace and security. The leader was joined by CDS Bipin Rawat, Indian army chief Gen MM Naravane, Air Chief Marshal Vivek Ram Chaudhari, and Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh.

Paying tributes to the “sacrifices made by the brave soldiers of the Indian Armed Forces, who stood steadfast with their Bangladeshi brothers and sisters”, Defence minister Rajnath Singh said, “the extraordinary leadership in India rose to the occasion against all odds and limitations in 1971, in support of a struggling nation fighting against the injustice and unspeakable atrocities perpetrated by the Pakistani Army.”

“India’s all-out support came naturally out of the historical experience and deeply emotional, cultural, linguistic, and fraternal ties that bind together the people of India and Bangladesh. We are proud that this friendship, founded in the shared sacrifice, has prospered by leaps and bounds,” he added.

The defence minister highlighted that “Indian Armed Forces and paramilitary forces worked together with the courageous Muktijoddhas in their valiant struggle. In the course of the conflict, more than 1650 brave Indian soldiers made the supreme sacrifice”.

“Defence cooperation between the two countries has grown steadily in the last few years by way of several activities – defence dialogue, staff talks, joint training, exercise, and high-level exchanges. Remarkably, all three Service Chiefs of Bangladesh have visited India this year and from India, the Chiefs of Army and Air Force visited Bangladesh this year. India has extended a Line of Credit worth USD 500 million to Bangladesh for defence equipment. We hope that this gesture will spur joint activities not only in the acquisition of assets but also in co-development and co-production of defence material,” he added.

Defense minister Rajnath Singh said, “the extraordinary leadership in India rose to the occasion against all odds and limitations in 1971, in support of a struggling nation fighting against the injustice and unspeakable atrocities perpetrated by the Pakistani Army.”

At the Republic Day Parade in New Delhi, a Tri-Service contingent from Bangladesh participated this year. And likewise, a marching Tri-service contingent of 122 members from India is going to take part at the Victory Day Parade in Dhaka on 16 December 2021.
