Bangladesh, India agree to work for disaster management
The agreement came during a meeting between Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Bangladesh's Disaster Management and Relief Minister Mofazzal Hossain Chowdhury Maya in the former's office.
Maya is leading the Bangladesh delegation at the Asian Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in New Delhi, according to a press release of Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi.
He told the home minister about how Bangladesh over the years has developed an efficient system of dealing with natural disasters like cyclones and floods.
Bangladesh, he said, can still benefit from Indian experiences in rescue and relief operations during earthquakes, while Rajnath hailed Bangladesh's “zero tolerance” policy to terrorism.
Syed Muazzem Ali, Bangladesh high commissioner in India, and Md Shah Kamal, secretary to the disaster and relief ministry, were present during the meeting.
