Cooperation   To further strengthen bilateral relations
State Minister for Foreign Affairs Md Shahriar Alam who signed the agreement on Wednesday told that this would open “a new horizon” in Bangladesh’s relations with Russia.

Russia’s Deputy Minister for Economic Development Alexey Gruzdev signed the agreement earlier in Moscow which was handed over by Russian Ambassador in Dhaka Alexander I Ignatov at the ceremony.

Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali witnessed the signing and said this would 'further strengthen bilateral relations' between the two countries.

The bilateral relations with Russia began in 1971 when the erstwhile Soviet Union firmly backed Bangladesh's Liberation War against Pakistan.
