Bangladesh–Lebanon relations refers to the bilateral relations between Bangladesh and Lebanon.

2006 Lebanon War[edit]

Bangladesh termed Israel's bombardment over Lebanon in 2006 as state terrorism and fully supported Lebanon's cause in the event.[1] The Lebanese government welcomed Bangladesh's pledge of sending troops to UNIFIL. Bangladesh also offered all kinds of assistance for the postwar rehabilitation and reconstruction of Lebanon.[2] In 2010, Bangladesh became the first South Asian country to send warships to UNIFIL when BNS Osman and BNS Madhumoti left Chittagong for Lebanon.[3]

Economic cooperation[edit]

In 2014, a business delegation from Bangladesh paid a visit to Lebanon. Lebanon has shown deep interest to import jute and jute products from Bangladesh. Besides, Bangladeshi ready made garments, fish, ceramics, leather and leader products were also identified as demanding products in the Lebanese market.[4]
