[] Re: Major General Muniruzzaman on Russian arms deal

Diplomatic dimensions of Russian arms deal:

The question is, has the PM gone for this deal out of her desire to diversify Bangladesh's source of military supply? Or does this deal have also its diplomatic implications? In these circumstances, has the prime minister carefully weighed up the pros and cons of going for this big spending spree on arms purchase and, that too, on credit from Russia? Is this decision the product of a well-thought-out policy on defence purchase, the existence of which we are not aware of?

We want to believe that on an issue as serious as defence diplomacy, the present government is being driven not by any nostalgia, nor reactively, but out of a clear-cut policy guideline. Otherwise, it is going to a big mess.
