President Ram Nath Kovind will visit Myanmar from December 10 to 14 during which he will hold talks with his counterpart U Win Myint and state counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, an official statement said on Tuesday.
Several agreements are expected to be signed during the visit, the Ministry of External Affairs said in the statement.
“Through this visit, the President will reaffirm India’s commitment to developing its important partnership with Myanmar. This is a country where India’s Act East and Neighbourhood First policies intersect. It is also the only ASEAN member state that is both a land and maritime neighbour of India,” it said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited Myanmar last year, while Aung San Suu Kyi visited India this January for the India-ASEAN commemorative Summit.
