Don`t let Indian insurgents operate, Myanmar told
New Delhi: Indian insurgents should not be allowed to operate out of Myanmar, Home Minister P. Chidambaram said Thursday.
"Our concern is that any part of Myanmar territory should not be used as a sanctuary for insurgents of the northeastern region," he said, just two days after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh returned from Yangon.
"If the Myanmar government apprehends anybody, it should hand over the person to us," Chidambaram told reporters here.
Manmohan Singh -- the first Indian prime minister to visit Myanmar in 25 years -- ended a three-day visit Tuesday.
Chidambaram said talks between the two countries on security matters were fruitful and the response from the Myanmar government was good. "Let us wait for some action on the ground," he said.
The central government is trying to engage several insurgent groups of its northeastern states in talks in order to restore peace in the region.
