Mentioning that barbed-wire fences will be erected around Kutupalong and Nayapara Rohingya camps, Army Chief General Aziz Ahmed yesterday said initial work on installing the boundary pillars has started.
“Next month, I’ll go to Myanmar where we will discuss issues relating to improving the relationship between the two countries. Many issues will come up and we may talk about the Rohingya issue but whatever happens, it will be in the interest of Bangladesh,” he said.
The army chief was talking to reporters after six units were provided with regimental colours at a ceremony held at Ramu Cantonment.
General Aziz Ahmed provided the regimental colours to 6, 9 and 27 Regiment Artillery under Ramu Cantonment, 6 Engineer Battalion, and 13 and 14 Bangladesh Infantry Regiment.
GOC 10th Infantry Division Major General MD Main Ullah Chowdhory, five former army chiefs and other former officers were present on the occasion.
