The Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) Nak Browne and the Chairman Chief of Staff Committee (COSC) Nirmal Verma are on a four day visit to Myanmar for improving bilateral association towards enhancing defence collaboration in areas of mutual interest between the two countries.
The CAS leads a five member Composite Defence Delegation team comprising of senior officers visiting Myanmar from Nov 26-29.
India and Myanmar share a common boundary spanning 1650 kms where relations are multifaceted and founded on historic linkages.
The Indian Prime Minister's historic visit to Myanmar after 25 years in May this year, Myanmar´s democracy icon and Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's recent visit and the defence minister´s proposed visit early next year testify towards enhanced bilateral cooperation between the two neighbours.
The Air Chief would call on President U Thien Sein, Vice Senior Gen Min Aung Hlang (C-in-C Defence Services) and Gen Myat Hein (C-in-C Air) during his visit towards reinforcing defence ties.
