Indian PM says shares Myanmar's concerns over Rakhine violence


India said Wednesday that it shares Myanmar's concerns over "extremist violence" in the Rakhine state from where 125,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging all stakeholders to find a solution that respects the country's unity.

He also visited Bogyoke Aung San Museum with Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi.

The Prime Minister also said that future Indian projects would be in line with Myanmar's needs and priorities.

India on Wednesday shared its concerns with Myanmar over the situation in the country's Rakhine state where the army has launched a crackdown on the Rohingyas, triggering a mass exodus.

Taking a strong stance on terror, Suu Kyi said, "Together we will ensure that terror is not allowed to take root on our soil or on the soil of neighbouring countries".

"People of India have the confidence that India can be transformed and we can break free from some of the evils that entered our system", he said.

- India and Myanmar signed an MoU to strengthen maritime security cooperation.

On her part, Suu Kyi thanked India for the strong stand it took against the threat of terrorism on Myanmar's soil.




He also spoke about bringing about development in the agricultural sector.

"The issue [Rohingya Muslims] is one of the biggest challenges Myanmar has to face, because you know that the situation in Rakhine has been hard for many decades and infact it goes right back to pre-colonial times", Suu Kyi told ANI.

Equating Rohingya Muslims issue in the Rakhine state with India's Kashmir issue, Myanmar's State Councillor Aung San Suu Kyi on Thursday said there is a similarity between Rohingya and Kashmir issue.

The project is created to link Sittwe port in Myanmar, which India helped develop, with the the northeastern Indian state of Mizoram.

He appreciated the role of the Indian diaspora in contributing towards to the development of wherever they have settled, adding that they also kept in touch with their roots.

Emphasising Myanmar's value in India's freedom struggle, Prime Minister Modi said that this is the sacred land from where Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose gave the slogan of "give me blood and I will give you freedom".

Earlier today, PM Modi received a ceremonial welcome from Myanmar President Htin Kyaw before the two inspected the guard of honour in Naypyidaw. Later, the prime minister left for heritage city of Bagan where he visited the Ananda Temple and the Bagan viewing tower.

■ Modi arrived in Myanmar on the second leg of his two-nation trip during which he travelled to southeastern Chinese city Xiamen where he attended the annual Brics summit and held talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and other world leaders.
