Myanmar, India to cooperate on border security

Yangon, June 16 (IANS) Myanmar and India vowed on Thursday to cooperate on issues of border security and stability, sources with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

The pledge came as Myanmar Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi met Ajit Doval, the Indian National Security Advisor who is visiting Nay Pyi Taw as a special envoy of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reports Xinhua.

Their discussions also covered development of long-term advantages from road connectivity between the two countries.

In June last year, there were clashes between the Indian Army and the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) near the Myanmar-India border.

The Myanmar Army then assured India it would not tolerate any rebel groups on its soil. Doval last visited Myanmar in June last year.
