WASHINGTON, April 23 (UPI) -- Delegates from the U.S. and Bangladesh came together Tuesday for the third U.S.-Bangladesh Dialogue on Security Issues.

With the objective of developing America's defense relationship with Bangladesh, the meeting included discussion about "strategic priorities and regional issues, security assistance, global security, and non-proliferation cooperation."
