Staff Correspondent, UNB/BMF Defence News

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the government has plans to include submarine with base facility in Bangladesh Navy by 2019 to build it as an effective ‘deterrent force’.

Hasina stated this while addressing the commissioning function of Bangladesh Navy’s first ever hydrographic survey ship ‘Anusandhan’ at Isha Khan Naval Base on Wednesday morning.

About problems with the neighboring countries over maritime boundaries, the Prime Minister said efforts are underway to solve the problems. “We do not want any war or conflict in this region. We believe in peace,” she said.

Hasina referred to a speech of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman where he had said that Bangladesh would not intervene in anyone’s internal affairs, but if others try to interfere in Bangladesh’s internal matters, it would also not be tolerated.

The Prime Minister said Bangladesh Navy will be built as modern and well equipped force in the future to boldly resist illegal trespass by foreign ships into Bangladesh territory and to stop smuggling through the sea.
