UNB, Dhaka :
Bangladesh High Commissioner to India Syed Muazzem Ali has called on Bimstec nations to enhance their security cooperation to "defeat terrorism in all its forms and manifestations."
He was speaking at a panel discussion on Monday in New Delhi with heads of mission from Bimstec member states in India ahead of the fourth Bimstec summit, scheduled to be held in Kathmandu on August 30-31.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to attend the summit of the 21-year-old regional grouping that comprises Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
Referring to Sheikh Hasina's zero-tolerance approach to terrorism and violent extremism Syed Muazzem said Bangladesh land is off-limit to any terrorist activities.
Bangladesh, he said, does not allow any terrorist group to launch attack against India or any other neighbouring
    
country, according to Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi.
The envoy said security cooperation among Bimstec countries has increased. "I firmly believe that within Bimstec, we should be able to strengthen our cooperation to address terrorism and rise of violent extremism," he said.
