Prime Minister Narendra Modi leaving for home after concluding his Myanmar visit


Nay Pyi Taw:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi today left for home after concluding his first bilateral visit to Myanmar during which he held wide-ranging talks with State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and vowed to combat terror.

"My Myanmar visit covered significant ground in giving a much needed impetus to India-Myanmar relations & deepening bilateral cooperation," PM Modi tweeted before he left for India.
"I thank the people and Government of Myanmar for their exceptional hospitality during my visit to the beautiful nation of Myanmar," the prime minister said in another tweet.

PM Modi's first bilateral visit here came at a time when the Myanmarese government led by nobel laureate Ms Suu Kyi is facing international pressure over the 1,25,000 Rohingya Muslims that have poured into Bangladesh in just two weeks after Myanmar's military launched a crackdown in the Rakhine state.

After his talks with Ms Suu Kyi, PM Modi had said India shares Myanmar's concerns over "extremist violence" in the Rakhine state, especially the loss of innocent lives of the people and the security personnel.

The prime minister, in his joint press statement with Ms Suu Kyi after the talks, had said India understands the problems being faced by Myanmar.

He had also asserted that it was important to maintain the security and stability of the land and maritime boundaries of the two countries.

After Modi-Suu Kyi talks, 11 agreements were signed between the two sides in areas like maritime security, strengthening democratic institutions in Myanmar, health and information technology.

PM Modi arrived here on the second leg of his two-nation trip after he travelled to the southeastern Chinese city Xiamen where he attended the annual BRICS Summit.
