NEW DELHI:  India and Myanmar have agreed on the need for “enhanced cooperation” between security forces and border guards to main peace at the border, with both sides agreeing to send a joint team to assess the situation in Nagaland sector. This was decided at the first ever meeting of the Joint Consultative Commission, co-chaired by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Myanmarese Foreign Minister U Wunna Maung Lwin.

A Joint Statement after the meeting said that both ministers “reaffirmed their shared commitment to fight the scourge of terrorism and insurgent activity in all its forms and manifestations.” “They emphasised the need for enhanced cooperation between security forces and border guarding agencies for securing peace, security and stability in the border areas which is crucial for overall development,” it said. This is a significant statement as it comes after Indian operation  last month against Naga rebels inside the Myanmarese border.
