Two, what kind of weapon? Small arms to replace the decade old rifles that police and BDR can actually use or useless heavy ones? We do not need it any of the areas listed in the article.
i am kinda familiar with the terms and mechanisms with mainly the nuclear deal and as both deals have some similar terms and conditions i can perhaps answer ur first question.
bangladesh dont have the amount currently to buy the weapon of 1 billion usd worth of weopons. but our arm force needs this weopons. so bangladesh will take the money as loan, and then py it on installments over a long time.
but do we really need that weopons ??? i dont know, the defense ppl knows. its their requirement. and the bad thing is the deal has a very high rate of interest compared to the nuke deal. not sure about the grace period and payback period though. it will put a big pressure on the economy.
