Modi In Myanmar Live: PM to Hold Talks With Suu Kyi

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Myanmar's State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi shake hands after their joint press conference in the Presidential Palace in Naypyitaw, Myanmar September 6, 2017.

Modi called on President Kyaw soon after he arrived in the country on his first bilateral visit.

After Modi-Suu Kyi talks, 11 agreements were signed between the two sides in areas like maritime security, strengthening democratic institutions in Myanmar, health and information technology. Around 40,000 Rohingyas are said to be staying illegally in India. He had visited the country in 2014 to attend the ASEAN-India Summit.

Myanmar condemned the terror attacks during the Amarnath Yatra in India in July that claimed the lives of eight Indian pilgrims as also various acts of terror perpetrated by terrorists from across the borders.

The Myanmarese president and Suu Kyi had visited India previous year.

He appreciated the role of the Indian diaspora in contributing towards to the development of wherever they have settled, adding that they also kept in touch with their roots.

Modi's first bilateral visit here comes at a time when the Myanmarese government led by Nobel laureate Suu Kyi is facing global pressure over the 125,000 Rohingya Muslims that have poured into Bangladesh in just two weeks after Myanmar's military launched a crackdown in the Rakhine state. "The authorities, under the leadership of Aung San Suu Kyi, have a particular responsibility to protect civilians from abuses, to stop the violence and to ensure humanitarian access", said Foreign Minister Børge Brende, according to a press release from the Norwegian embassy in Dhaka on Thursday.

Here is a report on his last day in Myanmar.

Estimates vary between 1.5 million and 2.5 million about the number of people of Indian origin living in Myanmar. He is also expected to talk up a trilateral highway project connecting India's north-east with Myanmar and Thailand.

The prime minister will address the Indian community in Myanmar at Yangon's Thuwanna Indoor Stadium.

In Bagan city, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting the 1105 AD Ananda Temple which is another prominent Buddhist shrine in Myanmar.
