The news was broken during Myanmar President U. Htin Kyaw’s recent visit to New Delhi where he said India and Myanmar had managed to develop a consensus on several bilateral issues.
Myanmar is confident of making these military headquarters functional within next six months and is confident that this will reduce the number of insurgents operating in these areas.
The newly-elected Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw in-turn has promised full military cooperation to India so as to help tackle militants operating from its own territory.
