Bangladesh–Burma relations

Bangladesh

Burma

The neighboring countries of Bangladesh and Burma (officially, Myanmar) had a generally cordial relationship under the Burmese military junta, although the presence of over 270,000 Burmese Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh often served as a major irritant. The civil society and political class of Bangladesh often voiced solidarity for Burma's pro-democracy struggle. However, Bangladesh has sought greater trade and road and rail networks with Burma to boost the economic relations between the two countries.[1]
