Myanmar seeks India's help to rein in Kachin and Naga militants

Myanmar has sought India’s help due to contain the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland-Khaplang (NSCN-K), reports The Telegraph on December 1. A source said after the Myanmar government signed a “state-level” ceasefire with the Naga rebel group in April 2012, “the KIA has apparently told the NSCN-K to take its concurrence before going ahead with the negotiations or signing any further pacts with the Myanmar Government.” The request was made last week by Deputy Minister of Home Affairs, Brigadier General Kyaw Zan Myint, in Myanmar, who led a 12-member delegation to the 18th Myanmar-India national-level meeting, where they discussed various issues with India’s border management team from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (UMHA). The KIA and Myanmar Army are currently fighting pitched battles over Kachin State.

Indian officials said there is a marked difference in the way Myanmar has begun to look at the problem of insurgency. “There is no denial anymore about the presence of Indian insurgents in Myanmar,” a Home Ministry source said.

Further, Myanmar’s Deputy Director of the Control Committee for Drug Abuse, Zaw Lin Tun, conceded to UMHA officials that there were poppy fields in Myanmar, of which some are owned and run by Indian insurgents.
