Imphal, Jun 10: A sectoral meeting of the officials of India and Myanmar is scheduled to be held on June 14 and 15 to discuss issues like border fencing at Moreh in Manipur's Chandel district, official sources said today (June 10).

The meeting would be held at Kalewa, about 50 kms from Moreh, in Myanmar.

The present construction of the fencing at Moreh has been stopped following objections raised by Myanmar officials that the the construction site included a small area of Myanmar, sources said.

Indian officials had already put their point that the construction was ten feet on Indian side from "no man''s land".

The 14-member Indian delegation would be led by Shambhu Singh, joint secretary (north east), ministry of home affairs, and representatives from Manipur government would also be included in the team, sources said adding that other issues like sharing of intelligence, security situation at the border would also be discussed.
