Operation Monogram is coming to a close after almost a month of training completed between the U.S., U.K., and Bangladesh. This was the first exercise to take place between the three countries with SOF members from each, as well as elements from the Bangladesh Navy. The exercise aimed at increasing collaboration between the countries in response to threats, terrorism, and crisis. US Ambassador Earl R Miller and Bangladesh Navy Rear Admiral Mohammed Shaheen Iqbal both attended the concluding ceremony on Tuesday. “Continuing these cooperative efforts is critical in preventing and countering threats to include drug and human trafficking, piracy and other challenges in the Indo-Pacific region,” commented Miller.
