The Cabinet today approved the Faculty Exchange Agreement between the New Delhi’s National Defence College and Dhaka based National Defence College.
The Agreement aims to institutionalize regular exchange programs and establish sustainable mechanisms to establish a framework for enhanced cooperation in the field of Military Education concerning strategic and operational studies.
It further aims on enhancing mutual cooperation between the two colleges in the field of National Security Development and Strategic studies.
The Cabinet while approving the Agreement said that given the geographical and cultural closeness between the two countries, there are many common challenges like countering terrorism that needs joint action.
“Hence, there is a need for better coordination and cooperation among the armed forces. The exchange of faculty members of the premier institutes will help to bring symmetry in the capacities of the armed forces and contribute to countering and managing common threats and challenges much better,” the Cabinet has said.
