The pledge came as Myanmar Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi met Ajit Doval, the Indian National Security Adviser who is visiting Nay Pyi Taw as a special envoy of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Xinhua News Agency reported.

Their discussions also covered development of long-term advantages from road connectivity between the two countries.

In June last year, there were clashes between the Indian Army and the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) near the Myanmar-India border.

The Myanmar Army then assured India it would not tolerate any rebel groups on its soil. Doval last visited Myanmar in June 2015.
