Bangladesh and Australia will work jointly to restrain various inter-states organised crimes including terrorism, drug trafficking, cyber crime, money laundering, illegal arms smuggling, piracy and human trafficking.

To this end, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between Bangladesh Police and Australian Federal Police at Australian capital Canberra Friday.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) AK M Shahidul Haq and Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin has signed the MoU on behalf of their respective organisations.

It is widely expected that the MoU would increase the cooperation between the police of both the two countries and check the crimes. It could also help to extend the area of security of this region.

"Increasing the technical capacity, exchanging information and coordination of the cops between the two countries would play a positive role in curbing terrorism and inter-state crimes of the region", said Bangladesh IGP at the function.

"It [the MoU]] would further increase training, technical and forensic capabilities and cooperation between the police officials of both the countries in future", the IGP added.
