Navy Chief Admiral Dinesh Tripathi Embarks on Four-Day Official Visit to Bangladesh

    Navy Chief Admiral Dinesh Tripathi begins a four-day visit to Bangladesh to enhance naval cooperation and military education ties with Bangladeshi counterparts.

    Admiral Dinesh Tripathi, the head of the navy, commenced his official four-day visit to Bangladesh on Sunday. The two nations are actively seeking new opportunities for collaboration and enhancing their close alliance.

    On July 4, the Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS) will review the Passing Out Parade at the Bangladesh Naval Academy (BNA) in Chittagong and hold bilateral consultations with his counterpart, Admiral M. Nazmul Hassan, in Dhaka.

    Bilateral Discussions with Bangladesh’s Top Military Officials

    The Ministry of Defence stated that the CNS would also have bilateral talks with senior government officials in Bangladesh, Lt. General Mizanur Rahman Shameem (Principal Staff Officer, Armed Forces Division), Bangladesh Air Force Chief Air Marshal Hasan Mahmood Khan, and Chief General Waker-Uz-Zaman of the Bangladesh Army.

    The CNS will also visit a few significant defense sites and give a speech to participants at the National Defence College in Dhaka.

    Strengthening Naval Cooperation and Military Education Ties

    “Naval cooperation between India and Bangladesh has been traditionally strong, encompassing a wide span which includes operational interactions through port calls, bilateral naval exercises, along with capacity building, capability enhancement and training initiatives,” said the Defense Ministry.

    In keeping with Admiral Tripathi’s visit, the Indian Navy destroyer INS Ranvir landed in Chattogram on Saturday for a week-long stay. The Indian Navy’s front-line combatant force on the Eastern Seaboard includes the Guided Missile Destroyer.

    A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was inked last week by Bangladesh and India to further their collaboration in the area of military education. During Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s state visit to India, an agreement was inked between the Defence Services Staff College (DSSC) in Wellington and the Defence Services Command and Staff College (DSCSC) in Mirpur, Dhaka.


    Tri-service officers receive instruction from both colleges to get them ready for higher staff and command responsibilities.
