The three-day official level talks between Indian and Myanmarese delegation at Tawang ended today, official sources said in Itanagar.

The sources, however, declined to disclose the agenda or outcome of the meeting between the Indian and Myanmarese
delegation which was held in Tawang from April 5-8.

The Myanmarese delegation was led by U Myat Ko, DG, General Administration Dept, Ministry of Home Affairs while
Naveen Verma, Joint Secretary (North East) in the ministry of Home Affairs led the Indian delegation.

Law and order, drug trafficking and other bilateral issued were discussed in the three-days talks, an official on
condition of anonymity said.

India had earlier requested Myanmar to undertake an operation against militants from North Eastern states holed up
in their bases in Myanmar on the lines of ones undertaken by Bhutan and Bangladesh earlier.

Union Home secretary G K Pillai had visited Naypyidaw, the new Myanmarese capital in January to convey the request.

Union Home minister P Chidambaram visited Tirap, one of the two districts declared disturbed under Armed Forces
Special Power Act, bordering Myanmar during his recent two-day visit to Arunachal and held a high level meeting with army, intelligence agencies and security personnel there.
