  • PM Narendra Modi and Myanmar: In search of new opportunities

Modi called on President Kyaw soon after he arrived in the country on his first bilateral visit. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Myanmar's State Counsellor Suu Kyi discussed the security situation prevailing along the long land border and maritime boundary.

Modi, in his statement, stressed on scaling up security cooperation, saying that being neighbours, the two countries have similar security concerns.

Another significant visit was to Bogyoke Aung San Museum with Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi herself.

"Together we will ensure that terror is not allowed to take roots in our country, on our soil or in our neighbouring countries", she said, adding that peace and stability were most important for development.

Appreciating India's development partnership with Myanmar in the areas of health, education and research, he said: "In this connection, the Myanmar Institute of Information Technology and Advanced Centre for Agricultural Research deserve special mention".

Suu Kyi said, "We are facing the same problem as India is facing in Kashmir".

■ The prime minister's visit to Myanmar comes amid a spike in ethnic violence against Rohingya Muslims in the Rakhine state.

Suu Kyi also thanked India for taking a strong stand on the terror threat that Myanmar faced recently.
