Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune on Saturday. Lt Col Saw Zarya Lwin, commanding officer of Myanmar’s Border Guard Police (BGP) at Rakhine’s Tambru, otherwise known as Taung Pyo Letwe on the Myanmar side, has been tasked with inspecting the border from their side, according to the BGB.

The Myanmar security forces previously said their increased presence and recent firing at the Tambru border point were meant to “protect their territory” and should not be viewed as acts of aggression against Bangladesh. The assurances were given at a flag meeting between BGB and BGP at a BGB camp under Bandarban’s Naikhongchhari upazila on Friday afternoon.
