US Deputy Assistant Secretary Mira Resnick arrived in Dhaka on Monday to lead Washington in the ninth annual Bangladesh-US Bilateral Security Dialogue to hold in Dhaka on Tuesday.
“The Security Dialogue is an annual, civilian-led discussion that touches on all elements of our security relationship,” said a media note from Public Affairs Section of Embassy of the United States of America here today.
Representatives from both sides will discuss several topics including Indo-Pacific regional issues, securi-ty and human rights, military cooperation, peacekeeping, security assistance and counterterrorism.
The dialogue is part of comprehensive security relationship between the two governments.
The United States and Bangladesh have a strong security partnership and share many interests in the In-do-Pacific region.
Both countries share a vision to ensure that the Indo-Pacific region is free, open, peaceful, and secure.
This year, the Security Dialogue closely follows the Bilateral Defense Dialogue, which took place on August 23 and 24 in Dhaka.
The Bilateral Defense Dialogue featured senior officers and civilians from the US and Bangladeshi mili-taries.
They discussed a range of issues specific to the military-to-military relationship, including military edu-cation, peacekeeping and upcoming military exercises, including next year’s Disaster Response Exercise and Exchange.
