Press Councils of India, Myanmar sign MoU on cooperation

Press Councils of India, Myanmar sign MoU on cooperation

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday presented Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi a special reproduction of the original research proposal that she had submitted for fellowship at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study at Shimla in May 1986. "It's necessary for us to work together towards the security of our land and maritime border", Prime Minister Modi said.

A government statement said Suu Kyi told Erdogan that the Myanmar administration was "defending all the people in Rakhine in the best way possible".

He said, PM Modi will also pay a visit to the Aung San Museum which was the General's residence for a long period of time.

Though both Suu Kyi and Htin Kyaw have visited India since their government came to power in Myanmar early past year, Modi - who has made India's neighbourhood his diplomatic priority - had till now only visited the country for a multilateral summit. Myanmar welcomed India's offer of assistance under the Rakhine State Development Programme and the two sides agreed to finalize the implementation modalities within the next few months, the statement added.

Violence against Rohingya Muslims in Burma's northwestern Rakhine state has sent almost 125,000 of them fleeing over the border to Bangladesh in just over 10 days.

On its part, India condemned the recent terrorist attacks in northern Rakhine State, wherein several members of the Myanmar security forces lost their lives.

Underlining the importance of maritime security, the Prime Minister said, "Myanmar and India, being neighbours, our outlook and focus on security are similar".

Modi arrived here on Tuesday on a three-day visit on his first bilateral trip to Myanmar. But India's familiar Achilles heel - a delay in delivering on promises - has hurt its efforts in Myanmar too.

The two leaders also vowed to combat terror and boost security cooperation. The Prime Minister had visited the country back in 2014 to attend the ASEAN-India Summit. "We hope they will soon be reunited with their families in Myanmar", Modi said.
