"U Htin Kyaw, President of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and wife Daw Su Su Lwin will pay a State Visit to the Republic of India in the near future at the invitation of His Excellency Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, President of the Republic of India," the President Office here said in a statement without specifying the date of his visit.

The announcement came a day after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's one-day visit to the country to hold talks with Myanmarese leaders on key bilateral issues during which it was assured that Myanmar will not allow any insurgent group to use its territory against India.

The assurance came in the backdrop of certain insurgent groups from northeastern states using Myanmar for launching
attacks against India.

In the first high-level visit from India after the civilian government assumed office here, Swaraj had called on the president and held extensive talks with State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi during which she conveyed India's commitment of "all help" to the new government.
