Bangladesh and India armed forces have explored "contours of future cooperation and agreed to work towards achieving greater synergy and partnership between the two armed forces."

They sat in the fifth Annual Defence Dialogue (ADD) on Monday at Dhaka. 

Giridhar Aramane, Defence Secretary of India and Lt Gen Waker-uz-Zaman, Principal Staff Officer, Armed Forces Division of Bangladesh led the respective sides.

They reviewed progress in their on-going defence cooperation in wide-ranging areas, including various exchange visits, military exercises, cooperation in humanitarian assistance and disaster reduction, defence industry cooperation, as well as various capacity building and training programs, the High Commission said in a Facebook post.

The collaboration between Bangladesh and India armed forces began in the 1971 war of independence when the Indian forces fought for the liberation of Bangladesh.
