Narendra Modi Meets Suu Kyi, Discusses India-Myanmar Relations

PM Narendra Modi Myanmar Visit LIVE: In Promise Of 'Act East', PM Begins Burma Visit

In Rakhine province, militants claiming to represent the Rohingya community have also launched increasingly aggressive attacks on Myanmar's security forces - including a clash late last month, in which multiple security personnel were killed.

The statement carried by the state media, said Suu Kyi told Erdogan that her government had "already started defending all the people in Rakhine in the best way possible". Wherever there are concerns, we highlight them.

He also presented the Myanmar president a reproduction of a 1841 map of a stretch of the River Salween (that flows from the Tibetan Plateau into the Andaman Sea) and a sculpture of the Bodhi tree.

On the agriculture side, he said India would be scaling up agricultural training.

"Prime Minister Modi and Councillor Aung San Suu Kyi meet in Myanmar, discuss further cementing of India-Myanmar relations", PMO tweeted.

■ We want all stake holders to work towards preserving Myanmar's unity and territorial integrity: PM after talks with Aung San Suu Kyi. He noted that peace and stability in Myanmar are of the highest priority to India and reiterated India's continued support to Myanmar in consolidating democratic institutions in the country and for the emergence of a democratic Federal Republic, the statement said.

On Wednesday, Modi tried to demonstrate his thoughtfulness to Suu Kyi, gifting the Myanmar leader a copy of a research proposal she had submitted to the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies in Shimla in 1986, when she was a student.

In the health care sector, the Foreign Secretary said India has upgraded three hospitals in Myanmar, including in Yangon and Sittwe. Several other agreements were also signed between the two countries. The Myanmar leader thanked Modi for his support against the "terror threat" her country faces.

For ordinary citizens, he spoke about projects being carried out with Indian cooperation and announced India would not charge its nationals a fee for visas to India. "We are partners in your concerns, over the loss of lives of security forces and innocent people due to the extremist violence in Rakhine State", PM Modi said.
