Yangon, Jan 28 (ANI): Indian Ambassador to Myanmar Gautam Mukhopadhaya on Thursday said that India aims to maintain healthy relations with the country with the coming of the new government.
“With change of government, we aim to maintain the ties as there are a few problems,” Mukhopadhaya said at a peace summit organised by Drukpa Monks in Yangon.
He said that it’s a rare opportunity that the Wajrayana School of Buddhism (Himalaya nations) has encountered with Terawada School of Buddhism… It’s definitely a meeting point of two traditions, he added.
“India and Myanmar have old historical relations ever since the colonial period. Over the past 5-10 years, there have been greater reforms by president Thein Sein’s Government. There have been greater openings for Myanmar and Indian relations and other countries,” Mukhopadhaya said.
He further said that both countries will proper economically and culturally, adding that many Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) are under negotiations between the two neighbours. (ANI)
