Rohingyas illegal migrants, will have to go: Kiren Rijiju

Prime Minister Narendra Modi being welcomed on his arrival at Nay Pyi Taw International Airport Myanmar on Tuesday

Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi has said her Government is protecting everyone in Rakhine state and that "terrorists" were behind an "iceberg of misinformation" about the Rohingya crisis.

This is Modi's first bilateral visit to Myanmar.

Naming Mahatma Gandhi, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Rabindranath Tagore and Bahadur Shah Zafar, he said Myanmar had become the "second home" for those who had to leave their own homes during the freedom struggle. Several other agreements were also signed between the two countries.

India has committed development assistance to Rakhine state in Myanmar where large-scale violence blamed on the minority Rohingya Muslim community has claimed the lives of security personnel and innocent people and triggered a mass exodus, Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar said on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Modi held wide-ranging talks with Myanmar's State Counsellor Suu Kyi and announced gratis visas for people of Myanmar and promised to release the 40 Myanmarese citizens, lodged in Indian jails. Myanmar welcomed India's offer of assistance under the Rakhine State Development Programme and the two sides agreed to finalize the implementation modalities within the next few months, the statement added.

Senior Journalist Gouri Lankesh shot dead, media on fire
An Indian journalist was fatally shot Tuesday by unidentified attackers in the southern Indian city of Bangalore, police said. Lankesh was a member of the Karnataka government's Naxal Panel in 2016 to help reformed Naxals surrender before the police.

Indian High Commissioner to Myanmar Vikram Misri said Tuesday that India has security concerns with Myanmar on the border that separates both countries, but the two sides have good cooperation in resolving such issues.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed the Indian diaspora in Myanmar's Yangon city.

Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights Chairperson Nasreen Jalil told Express that the genocide of Rohinya Muslims has intensified in recent days and Pakistan should end trade with Myanmar in response, taking a cue from the Maldives, which has already done so. The Myanmar leader thanked Modi for his support against the "terror threat" her country faces.

Suu Kyi was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for her work in bringing democracy to Myanmar, but some have called for her Prize to be taken back. He had earlier come here in 2014 to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean)-India Summit.
