Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria embarked on a four-day trip to Bangladesh on Monday during which he will meet senior officials of the Bangladesh air force and also visit its key operational bases, the IAF said.
Bhadauria's Bangladesh counterpart Air Chief Marshal Masihuzzaman Serniabat was in India earlier this month and represented his country at the Chiefs' of Air Staff Conclave 21 at Air Force Station Yelahanka, Bengaluru, where he led a delegation to Aero India 2021, reports Times of India.
'During the course of the four-day visit, the CAS and delegation are scheduled to interact with senior dignitaries and visit key operational bases of BAF. 'They will discuss the progress made in areas of shared interests and explore avenues to further mutual military cooperation,' the Air Force said.
The visit of the CAS to Bangladesh comes at a time when both Bangladesh and Indian armed forces are celebrating 50 years of the 1971 victory.
The visit will also enhance the existing professional ties and bonds of friendship between the two Air Forces, the IAF added.
