Bangladesh and Cyprus have agreed to extend cooperation between the two countries on public safety.

Bangladeshi Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan and Cyprus Interior Minister Nicos Nouris expressed their optimism regarding this when they held a meeting at Taj Palace in New Delhi on Saturday, according to a message received in Dhaka.

Khan was in the Indian capital for taking part in a two-day ministerial conference on “No Money for Terrors.”

Md Mustafizur Rahman, Bangladesh High Commissioner to India, Public Security Division Joint Secretary Abu Hena and Minister (consular) Selim Jahangir were also present there.

Representatives from 76 countries attended the conference, which was organised by India, to discuss terrorist financing and related issues.

Home ministers of about 20 countries including Russia, France, Australia, Indonesia and Singapore also joined the conference.

The ministerial conference was aimed to progress the discussions on combating terrorist financing held by the international community in the previous two conferences in Paris in 2018 and Melbourne in 2019.
