Union Home Minister P Chidambaram will review the security situation in the state amid speculation that Myanmar may launch an operation against Northeast militants having bases there, officials said.

Chidambaram, who arrived here today on a two-day visit, will hold a high level meeting with the Army and security agencies.

He is also scheduled to visit Khonsha, headquarters of Tirap, a district declared disturbed along with adjoining Changlang, under the Armed Forces Special Power Act because of activities of militants from neighbouring Nagaland and Assam.

The militants use the forests in the two districts sharing border with Myanmar as corridor to their bases across the international border.

After being driven out from Bhutan and Bangladesh, the militants have reportedly taken refuge in camps in Myanmar.

Union Home Secretary G K Pillai had visited Naypyidaw, the new Myanmarese capital, in January.
