New Delhi, Aug 29 (IANS) External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday called on Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw who is on a four-day visit to India.

“Last Monday in Nay Pwi Taw, today in Delhi! EAM @SushmaSwaraj calls on the President of Myanmar HE U Htin Kyaw,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
