Bangladesh and Myanmar have agreed to boost cooperation on security between the two countries.

Both the countries agreed to sign two memorandums of understating (MoUs) on holding a dialogue on security, cooperation and construction of a border liaison office.

They also expressed importance of higher-level visits between the two countries, Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali told journalists at a press briefing at his foreign ministry office in Dhaka.

The foreign ministry organised the briefing following yesterday’s meetings of Myanmar State Minister for Foreign Affairs U Kyaw Tin with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the foreign minister.
