Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday held a meeting with Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on the sidelines of the ASEAN-India Summit.

Recalling his last visit to Myanmar in September 2017, and the visit of the State Counsellor to India during the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit in January 2018, the leaders expressed satisfaction at the progress of the vital partnership between the two countries.

 

 

Both the leaders discussed issues relating to the operationalising of the Sittwe port, being built by New Delhi, as well as a section of the Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport Project and border demarcation.

During the meeting, the leaders talked about improving bilateral ties between India and Myanmar, exchange of high-level visits, continued constructive assistance from India, and ASEAN-India cooperation, based on common interest.
