NEW DELHI: Earlier this week, India’s foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla and Army chief Gen MM Naravane visited Myanmar and interacted with the top leadership. The bilateral relationship straddles both civil and military domains. India is part of several key infrastructure projects there. Besides, India-Myanmar ties are rooted in history and culture. Of late, China has been making inroads into Myanmar and India is wary of that. In this episode of ‘Simply Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale explains where Myanmar figures in India’s ‘Act East’ scheme of things.
