Military relations with Burmese army growing: Assam Rifles publication


An Assam Rifles compendium on ‘Indo-Myanmar border management’ has claimed that military diplomacy with the eastern neighbour has picked up over the years.

“India and Myanmar’s engagement with each other has been extended to the military levels too. A number of military diplomacy actions are undertaken regularly by both the armies,” stated an article in the compendium on ‘Tatmadaw: History and Higher Organization’ written by two Assam Rifles officers, Brigadier M S Mokha and Colonel Brijendra Singh.

They detailed the military diplomacy actions between the Indian and Burmese army – regular post-level meetings, Regional Border Committee (RBC) meetings, joint military exercises, coordinated patrolling, defence deals and regular mutual visit of senior officers.

The article disclosed that the RBC meeting is held one every six months – twice a year, once in Imphal and once in Kalay (Myanmar) alternatively.  Read More
