US embassy helps BGB in border security

The US embassy in Dhaka held a ‘veterinary subject matter expert exchange seminar’ with the Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) recently in Chittagong, focusing on preventive medicine and trauma care for BGB working dogs and their handlers.

Beginning on January 26 this year, the two-week seminar brought together 29 dog handlers, 14 working dogs, and one veterinarian officer from nine BGB Chittagong outstations to share their knowledge and personal experiences in working with their canine partners said a press release of the US Embassy in Dhaka on Tuesday, according to BSS reports.

The two-week veterinary expert exchange seminar is one of the many initiatives of the US government to promote greater collaboration and mutual understanding between Bangladesh and the United States, according to the release.

The United States is committed to its security relationship with Bangladesh, which helps ensure Bangladesh’s security as well as a free and open Indo-Pacific region.
