New Delhi: Navy Chief Admiral Nirmal Verma is
on a four-day visit to Myanmar to discuss ways to strengthen
bilateral ties.
During the visit which began on August 23, the Navy Chief
met his military counterparts and discussed ways of enhancing
cooperation in maritime affairs.

The Naval Chief would return tomorrow after meeting top
military and political leadership of Myanmar, Navy officials
said here.

India and Myanmar share a common maritime boundary in the
Bay of Bengal and the two sides have participated in
multilateral exercises also.
The relations between the two navies hold significance as
the defence exchanges between India and Myanmar had started
through them only.
