Prime Minister Narendra Modi today met Myanmar President Win Myint and discussed ways to strengthen bilateral cooperation.

The two leaders met in the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, on the sidelines of the 4th Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) Summit.

“Discussion focused on development cooperation, energy and other areas of bilateral cooperation,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

“Wonderful discussions and exchange of ideas on strengthening BIMSTEC during the retreat of leaders in Kathmandu this morning,” Modi tweeted.
