Leimakhong (Manipur), Nov 11 (ANI): A Myanmarese army delegation, participating in a liaison meeting in Manipur, has assured India that they would not allow their territory to be used by anti-India insurgent groups.

The 38th Indo-Myanmar biannual liaison meeting was held at Leimakhong on Tuesday.

A 15-member Myanmarese delegation led by Brigadier General Tin Maung Ohn is in the border town since Monday for the meeting.

"They are very helpful. In fact, they assured us that they would not allow their territory to be used by any of these Indian insurgent groups. They gave us full assurance and I am sure they are already acting on it," said Major General SS Pawar, leader of the Indian delegation.

The meeting was followed by a polo game showcased by the All Manipur Horse Riding and Polo Association.

India shares a 1,645-km border with Myanmar.

India says around 3,000 rebels live and train in the camps inside the jungles of Kabaw Valley of Myanmar's Sagaing Division.

India has a pact with Myanmar to share intelligence, but officials say it is not enough to stop insurgent activity. (ANI)
