Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday said Bangladesh Armed Forces must have necessary preparedness to protect the country’s independence and sovereignty keeping pace with technological development of the modern world.
“We need to have all kinds of preparedness, equipment and training to protect our country from the attack of outside enemies,” she said.
The Prime Minister said this while addressing the Selection Board Meeting of Bangladesh Navy and Air Force at Dhaka Cantonment.
She joined the meeting at the headquarters of the Navy and Air Force through a videoconference from her official residence Ganobhaban.
Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh never wants war with any country, rather it wants peace as no country can achieve desired development without peace as war only brings destruction.
“We don’t want to go down the path of destruction. But if anyone attacks us, we have to make all kinds of preparations to protect our country,” she said.
Hasina said the government is building the armed forces in such a way so that it can protect the country’s independence and sovereignty.
