Bangladesh Army chief General Aziz Ahmed has met Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen ahead of his visit to Myanmar.

Talking to reporters after the meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on Wednesday, Army chief General Aziz said they discussed ways to enhance military-to-military cooperation and engagement in addition to issues relating to improving the existing ties between the two countries, reports UNB.

In November, Foreign Minister Dr Momen has said the Army chief’s visit to Myanmar will open another line of negotiation between the two countries over Rohingya repatriation. 

“We want to resolve Rohingya crisis through discussions. I think the visit will go in favour of Bangladesh," Momen told journalists at State guesthouse Padma recently.

Dr Momen said Myanmar is not an enemy but a friend of Bangladesh and their army in Myanmar plays a very significant role.
