Bangladesh Army chief General Aziz Ahmed on Thursday paid a courtesy call on Central African Republic's President, Faustin-Archange Touadéra.

During the meeting, General Aziz conveyed the greetings of Bangladesh President Md Abdul Hamid, and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to Touadéra, says an Inter Services Public Relations Directorate (ISPR) press release.

Touadéra thanked Bangladesh for its leadership in the peacekeeping mission in his country, responding to the call of the United Nation, and the international community. 

He sought the cooperation of Bangladesh for upgrading the African nation’s infrastructure, security, defence, and education.   

Touadéra also praised Bangladeshi peacekeepers’ professionalism, human values, and their role in infrastructural development, while General Aziz assured him of sending more medical, and engineering units to the Central African Republic.   

The army chief also assured him of Bangladesh government’s regular, and long-term assistance to the people of the Central African Republic. 

Later, General Aziz visited the headquarters of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the country—well known as MINUSCA, where he was given a guard of honor.
