State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi received the Indian External Affairs Minister Ms Sushama Swaraj and her party at the Presidential Palace in Nay PYi Taw yesterday.
During the meeting, they discussed matters related to cooperation in education, health and trade between the two countries.
“The visit by External Affairs Minister to Myanmar which was really the first high-level engagement between India and Myanmar after the new government came to power will serve as a very strong foundation for the further development and diversification of the India-Myanmar ties which are set for a very bright future,” reported by ANI quoting the ministry’s official spokesperson Vikas Swarup.
He further said that both sides discussed the strong possibility of cooperation in the area of agriculture, particularly pulses where there is a possibility of importing large volume of pulses from Myanmar.
Swaraj, who arrived here earlier on the day, came more than two months after the visit to the country of Ajit Doval, Advisor for National Security of India, as special envoy of the Indian prime minister in June.
Also present at the call were Minister of State for Foreign Affairs U Kyaw Tin and officials.—GNLM with MNA
