Air Chief Marshal Birender Singh Dhanoa will visit Bangladesh on Monday, the Defence Ministry said in Delhi on Sunday, adding Dhanoa will undertake a four-day visit to the country. It's part of the bilateral goodwill visit to a SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) nation, it said.
During his visit, the Indian Air Force chief is scheduled to visit the operational and training units of Bangladesh Air Force. He is also slated to meet chiefs of the three defence services and Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
“The visit would provide further impetus towards increasing defence cooperation and pave the way for greater interaction,” the ministry said.
“This would also strengthen relationships and enable engagement in productive exchanges between the two Air Forces," it said.
