NEW DELHI, Sept 1 - With a new government in Myanmar in place, India wants to tread cautiously though thorny issues like the presence of Indian insurgent outfits there and the Rohingya refugees are expected to figure in the deliberation when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits the country on September 5-7.
Briefing newsmen here, Joint Secretary, Bangladesh and Myanmar, Sripriya Ranganathan said there is no difference between India and Myanmar. �The problem of the insurgent groups is something which has remained under discussion between India and Myanmar and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the two sides have confidence about the good intention of both sides and desire on part of the two sides to prevent any hostile activities,� she said.
Several of the militant outfits, including the Paresh Baruah faction of the ULFA, NDFB, NSCN Khaplang faction and militant outfits of Manipur are openly operating out of the neighbouring country. India has been taking up their activities with Myanmar but so far the neighbouring country has not taken any noticeable action against the militant outfits from Northeast India based there.
About the cross-border strike by the Indian Army, she said action by the Indian security forces was carried along the international boundary and it is a difficult border and the Myanmar government understands this.
