Deputy Chief of Mission at Japanese Embassy Takeshi Ito on Thursday delivered a special lecture titled “Japan’s Foreign Policy and Japan-Bangladesh Relations” at the University of Chittagong.

It provided an overview of Japan’s diplomatic activities, focusing especially upon the context of Japan’s foreign policy in Asian region as well as present and future course of the bilateral relations between Japan and Bangladesh, according to Japanese Embassy in Dhaka. 

CU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Shireen Akhter said Japan is a long-standing friend of Bangladesh since its independence.
