After saluting the memorial of Indian martyrs, General Mubeen interacted with senior Indian army officials. General Mubeen had earlier on Tuesday reviewed the Passing Out Parade (POP) of the 121st Course at the National Defence Academy (NDA) at Khadakwasla near Pune. He had stated on the sidelines of the event there that Chinese assistance in the infrastructural development of Chittagong port would not affect 'Dhaka's ties with New Delhi' since the two neighbouring countries have historical relationship and several common problems to solve. The visit of General Mubeen, who will be in India till December 2, assumes special significance in the light of improving military cooperation between the two countries in consonance with our growing relationship with Bangladesh. India-Bangladesh relations are multifaceted and founded on historical linkages. The successful culmination of the recent visit of Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh to Bangladesh in September 2011 has contributed significantly to the consolidation of the existing ties and given a further boost to the cordial relations between both the nations. Military-to-military cooperation between Bangladesh and Indian Armed Forces encompasses exchange of high and medium level visits, availing of training courses in each other's training institutions, witnessing of designated exercises by military observers from both sides, exchange of War Veterans, UNPKO, sharing experience in disaster management, sports and adventure activities. The ensuing visit of Bangladesh Army Chief has a major significance in the burgeoning defence cooperation between both the countries.
