Bernicat praises Bangladesh’s contribution to global peace
US Ambassador Marcia Bernicat on Saturday praised Bangladesh's contribution to United Nations peacekeeping operations. "Bangladesh Army proves its commitment by continuously contributing immense support to UN peacekeeping operations worldwide in spite of many hurdles," Bernicat said. She made the remark at a programme for a new multipurpose training facility at Bangladesh Institute of Peace Support Operation Training (BIPSOT) in Gazipur. Bangladesh Army has established its identity throughout the world with professionalism, bravery and integrity, Bernicat added. US Admiral Harry Binkley Harris Jr, commander of United States Pacific Command (USPACOM), who arrived in Bangladesh on July 8, and General Abu Belal Muhammad Shafiul Huq, Bangladesh chief of Army Staff, attended the ceremony. BIPSOT was powered by the US State Department’s Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) programme. It will provide around $5 million worth assistance from US government and a $3.6 million worth training facility including a 750-seat auditorium and additional training rooms. Shanti-Doot 4, a training programme, is scheduled to be organised in February and March next year under BIPSOT programme in association with USPACOM. Bangladesh, being the fourth highest contributing nation in UN missions, will celebrate its 30th anniversary of entering into UN peacekeeping operations in 2018. Currently Bangladesh has deployed 6,900 troops and police in 13 UN peacekeeping operations around the globe.
