Guwahati: Myanmar officially shared all data related to its operations against Indian based insurgent groups with New Delhi on Monday.

Indian ambassador to Myanmar Saurabh Kumar met the commander-in-chief of Myanmar Army at Naypyidaw and got access to the details. The crackdown of Indian based rebel groups like National Socialist Council of Nagaland- Khaplang (NSCN-K) and United Liberation Front of Assam- Independent (ULFA-I), was discussed in the meeting.

A press communiqué issued by the office of the commander-in-chief of defence services of Myanmar said that the chief of defence services General Min Aung Hlaing received Kumar at the Parlour of Bayintnaung Villa in Naypyidaw.

“At the meeting, the two sides frankly discussed cooperation in security and defence affairs between the armed forces of two countries. The two countries have plans to further enhance the cooperation in ensuring peace and stability of border,” office of the commander in chief of defence services added.

Myanmar Army’s senior Lt-Gen Soe Htut and other senior military officers were also present. The Indian ambassador to Myanmar was accompanied by the defence attaché colonel Naveen Mahajan and other officials.

From January 29, Tatmadaw (Myanmar Army) started operations against rebel groups. On January 29, more than four hundred troops of Tatmadaw captured the headquarters of NSCN (K) in Ta Ga village, located in the Sagaing region of Myanmar. The operation continued till end of February and the troops destroyed all camps of ULFA (I), NDFB (S), KLO, PDCK, KYKL, PREPAK, PLA, UNLF and other insurgent groups.

As a result of Tatmadaw’s operation, the insurgents fled from Ta Ga areas to different locations. Troops of Tatmadaw arrested dozens of NSCN (K)’s cadres including five top functionaries. After the continuous operation, commander-in-chief of ULFA (I) Paresh Baruah said on last February that it was the Indian government’s pressure which prompted Myanmar carried out such operation.
