The ninth annual US-Bangladesh Bilateral Security Dialogue was held. This dialogue will be held in Dhaka on Tuesday, September 5. The US delegation to the security dialogue will be led by Mira Reznik, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs.
The Security Dialogue is an annual, non-governmental event where all issues related to security are discussed. The dialogue is part of the comprehensive security relationship between the two governments.
Representatives from both sides will discuss Indo-Pacific regional issues, security and human rights, military cooperation, peacekeeping, security assistance, and counter-terrorism on September 5.
The US-Bangladesh security partnership is very strong, and the two countries have common interests in the Indo-Pacific region. The two countries share a common vision of keeping the Indo-Pacific region free, unfettered, peaceful, and secure. Various dialogues are organized throughout the year to achieve these mutual goals.
This year’s Security Dialogue is going to be held very close to the Bilateral Defense Dialogue held in Dhaka on August 23 and 24. The bilateral defense dialogue was attended by senior US and Bangladeshi military officials and civilians.
The officials discussed various issues specific to military relations, such as military education, peacekeeping, and upcoming military exercises, including next year’s disaster response exercises and exchanges.
