Home minister: Myanmar removed heavy weapons from border
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal reported Myanmar has removed its heavy weapons from the Tambru border area following a flag meeting held on Friday. The minister said the above while talking to reporters at a program arranged by Metropolitan Cooperative Society in the capital’s Farmgate area on Saturday. “During the flag meeting, Myanmar authorities said they, upon receiving wrong information, deployed army and artillery along Tambru border in Naikhongchhari of Bandarban,” he said. Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and Myanmar’s Border Guard Police (BGP) will patrol their respective border areas in coordination from March 27, Asaduzzaman added. Earlier on Thursday, BGB members were put on high alert as the Myanmar army took position along the Tambru border in Naikhongchhari of Bandarban with heavy arms and ammunition. The foreign ministry summoned the Myanmar Ambassador in Dhaka Lwin Oo over the deployment of troops and artillery and lodged its protest strongly. In the wake of strong protest by Dhaka, Myanmar on Friday defended the deployment of troops and artillery along the Bangladesh-Myanmar border saying that it was done for internal security.
