Dhaka, Beijing to join hands against terrorism, cybercrime

Bangladesh and China are going to work jointly towards curbing terrorism and money laundering. They will also put in joint endeavour to train security personnel.

The two counties will ink two memorandums of understanding (MoUs) in this regard during the visit of the Chinese public security minister to Dhaka at the end of this month. In addition, Bangladesh and China are going to form joint working groups on terrorism, cyber crime and money laundering soon, home ministry sources say. The proposed MoUs are likely to be inked after a meeting between the Bangladesh home minister and the Chinese public security minister in Dhaka on October 26, the sources added.

They also said a high-powered delegation, led by the Chinese  minister, would be in Dhaka from October 25 to October 27. The delegation will call on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on October 25. Home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told The Independent that security-related issues would be discussed in the talks between Dhaka and Beijing. "We'll discuss various aspects of security cooperation,” he said.

Md Abu Bakr Siddique, additional secretary (political) of the Public Security Division of the home ministry, told this correspondent that a proposed project titled "Safe Dhaka City" would also be discussed. The project is likely to be implemented in Dhaka, financed by the Chinese government.

“We will discuss the issue of security of the Chinese people involved in different Chinese projects,” he added. “We plan to form joint working groups on terrorism, cyber crime and anti-money laundering. These groups would be headed by a director general (DG)-level official of the foreign ministry from both sides,” he noted.

Sources said China may offer to increase the capacity-building measures for members of the law enforcement agencies of Bangladesh by providing training. China may also push for sharing of information between the law enforcement agencies of the two countries. The Chinese minister is also scheduled to visit India and Myanmar this month.
