Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday reiterated her government’s determination to create modern and strong armed forces keeping pace with the world to safeguard country’s hard-earned independence and sovereignty.

‘We want to move keeping pace with the world, we don’t want our armed forces to lag behind in any field. Keeping this in mind we’re further modernizing and strengthening the armed forces,’ she said this in the 42nd founding anniversary function of the PGR at its headquarters at Dhaka Cantonment on Wednesday afternoon.

The prime minister also called for continuation of the success in curbing terrorism and militancy and reaffirmed that there won’t be any room for the twin monsters.
