Myanmar assures to help India to nab ULFA chief
New Delhi, Jan 24: Myanmar has assured India of help in nabbing ULFA commander-in-chief Paresh Baruah.
Myanmar's ruling junta has also planned to launch coordinated operations with India to flush out Northeast militants in its territories.
The assurance was given at a 3-day home secretary-level talks between the two countries on Sunday, Jan 24.
According to a home ministry official, "Security forces of India and Myanmar will conduct coordinated operation in their respective territories in the next two-three months."
"The objective of the operation is that no militant can escape to the other side after facing heat in one side," the official said.
"We have conveyed to the Myanmar delegation that we have information that Paresh Baruah is hiding in their territory and they assured us to track him down if found in their territory," the official added.
The security forces of both countries will also intensify their vigil along the border to check smuggling of arms, narcotic drugs and other goods.
