  1. Bangladesh maintains unofficial ties with Israel through third parties such as Singapore. The Bangladesh Army imported Israeli made Spike ATGMs during 2011-2012 and the air force also uses Mi-17 helicopter simulators which are developed by an Israeli company with offices in Singapore. Unfortunately now the Bangladesh Army changed its policies as far as weapons imports are concerned. Due to introduction of standardisation the Army has to inspects the production facilities of the manufacturers for any standardised or significant military equipment. Equipment like Spike are made in Israeli factories and transfer of technology cannot be undertaken so acquisition of Spike and its technology could not be done. Israel also asked Singapore not to export the Spike ATGM to Bangladesh fearing some strong Indian reaction. This has kept the Indians and Islamist's very happy as they are on the same page as far as Israel is concerned.
