Indo-Myanmar pact to benefit NE: Gogoi

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 15 � The Indo-Myanmar agreement is going to serve the interest of the North-eastern States the most, especially in dealing with the insurgents holed up in the neighbouring country.

This was stated by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi while talking to media persons today.

The Chief Minister said, �Like Bangladesh, we hope that Myanmar too would initiate steps to flush out militants from their backyard. The bordering areas of Myanmar, particularly the Arunachal-Myanmar border, has become a hub for the militant outfits of the region, which is why it was important for the both the countries to have some sort of bilateral understanding to deal with the situation.�

�Insurgent groups like the ULFA and NSCN are still present in the neighbouring country. The Myanmar Government has assured to deal with the matter effectively, which is a good sign,� Gogoi said.

He also pointed out that the bilateral tie would further boost the economy of the region, especially in relation to the Look East policy.

�New avenues will come up in the trade and commerce sectors and the region�s economy will get a lift,� Gogoi hoped.
