Bangladesh–Iran relations are the bilateral relations between Bangladesh and Iran.


Modern relations

With the fall of the Shah in 1979, new dimensions were added to the relationship between the newly proclaimed Islamic Republic of Iran and Bangladesh. Relations gradually grew further with President Hashemi Rafsanjani becoming the first Iranian leader to visit independent Bangladesh in 1995. Subsequently Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina also visited Iran and held talks with President Mohammed Khatami.

Current Relations

The government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is seeking to deepen ties between the two states, with Iranian investment in Bangladeshi industry. Bangladesh has also supported Iran''s controversial nuclear program, claiming it is for peaceful purposes. The Bangladeshi interim government also called for Iran''s full membership of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation; it is currently an observer member of the organization.

Bangladesh and Iran signed a preferential trade accord in July 2006 which removed non-tariff barriers, with a view to eventually establishing a free trade agreement. Before the signing of the accord, bilateral trade between the countries amounted to US$100 million annually.

In mid-2007, the Bangladeshi government requested Iran''s help in the construction of a nuclear power plant in Bangladesh, in order to offset the decline in the availability of gas for power generation. Bangladeshi Minister of Power, Energy and Natural Resources also requested Iranian assistance for the construction of new oil refineries in Bangladesh.
