Russia, Bangladesh Ink Arms, Energy Deals
From Ria Novosti
A raft of bilateral deals in nuclear energy and gas extraction, defense and other sectors were signed at a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday.
Ahead of the meeting, the Russian president told Hasina: “In the run-up to your visit, our colleagues have prepared a wide range of various agreements and contracts, which will become a huge step forward in developing relations between the two states.”
Hasina, in her turn, expressed hope that the agreements would improve bilateral ties and spur the development of Bangladesh’s economy. She also invited the Russian president to visit Bangladesh, possibly this year, and Putin accepted “with gratitude,” reads the joint statement of the two leaders.
