Bangladesh's army chief General Mohammed Abdul Mubeen will pay a visit to India next week to boost military ties between the two nations.
On an invitation by his Indian counterpart General Deepak Kapoor, Mubeen will visit the country on a five-day goodwill tour.
He will be accompanied by his wife and a four-member army delegation. During the tour he will call on Kapoor and discuss on the matters of professional interests, bilateral military issues and visit Indian Army establishments, an ISPR statement said here.
This would be Mubeen's maiden India tour after his appointment as the chief of army staff last year.
Kapoor had visited Dhaka on a six-day tour in July 2008, five months after his the then counterpart and Mubeen's predecessor General Moeen U Ahmed visited India on a weeklong tour.
