President APJ Abdul Kalam returned in New Delhi on Tuesday morning after a six-day two-nation tour which took him to Myanmar and Mauritius.

A high point of Kalam's three-day visit to Port Louis was New Delhi's offer to its "close relative" to cooperate in the key sugar and textile sectors which are facing difficulties in the post-WTO regime.

Two crucial agreements were signed on Pan-African e-network and exploration of hydrocarbon in the Mauritian Exclusive Economic Zone.

During his three-day stay in Myanmar, Kalam pitched for restoration of democracy in Myanmar.

Both countries signed a number of agreements, including one on the key petroleum sector, as energy-starved India has high stakes in Myanmar's gas reserves.

As part of its 'Look East' policy, New Delhi has strengthened cooperation with Yangon in a number of sectors, including the military field.
