Sushma calls on Myanmar President
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.
Sushma Swaraj went to Myanmar’s administrative capital Nay Pyi Taw for a daylong visit on August 22 during which she invited President Kyaw and State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi to visit India.
President Kyaw reached Bodh Gaya on Saturday and then visited the Taj Mahal in Agra on Sunday before arriving in New Delhi.
