Bangladesh’s proximity to China is increasing
Bangladesh’s tone changed a bit after Sheikh Hasina became Prime Minister again. Now he is interested in Infra projects in China. Bangladesh awarded the contract for the Sylhet airport terminal to the Chinese company last year. While Sylhet is adjacent to the northeastern border of India and is considered a sensitive area. With its help, China plans to monitor the entire northeastern region of India.
China wants to make its presence in the Bay of Bengal
China wants to make its presence in the Bay of Bengal to surround India. This is why the military coup in Myanmar has been criticized by the whole world, but China has favored the Myanmar army at every step. He vetoed a resolution criticizing the Myanmar military at the UN Security Council and the Human Rights Council. Aung Sang Suu Kyi’s government did not approve of China’s plans, affecting China’s dream of reaching Bangladesh.
