The cabinet on Sunday approved the draft of an “Agreement for cooperation in the Legal Field” to be signed with Gulf state Qatar in a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

The agreement will be signed between Dhaka and Doha very soon. It will help Bangladesh in seeking legal assistance from the Gulf country, said Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam at a briefing after the meeting.

“The agreement will let Bangladesh learn about the legal system of Qatar. The agreement will lead to the signing of Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with Qatar’s legal institutions, which will further lead to exchange of legal personnel between the two countries,” the Cabinet Secretary said.

Anwarul added that the Cabinet has approved a proposal to support the amendment of Protocol 50(A) and 56 of International Civil Aviation.

“Through the amendments, the membership of the International Civil Aviation Organization Council (ICAO) will be increased to 40 from the current 36 and the membership of the Air Navigation Commission will be expanded to 21 from the existing 19. It’s an international agreement which Bangladesh had conformed to a long time ago. That’s why the amendment has been brought to the Cabinet for approval,” added Anwarul.
