"I would particularly draw attention to the fact that we have discussed committing Indian assistance to the Rakhine state development programme because we really believe that the medium term way of addressing problems in the Rakhine area is really to look at developmental aspect", Jaishankar said while briefing media persons following delegation-level talks led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi here earlier in the day.
The MoU was signed by Justice Chandramauli Kumar Prasad, Chairman, Press Council of India, and U Aung Hla Tun, First Vice-Chairman, Myanmar Press Council, at the Presidential Palace in Nay Pyi Taw. PM Modi also assured the citizens of Myanmar that visas will be granted to all those who wish to visit India.
The Indian government is also concerned about Rohingya immigrants in the country, and has been considering to deport them.
Tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar's Rakhine province following clashes with Buddhists and counter-terrorism operations by Myanmar's security forces.
"We fully understand the challenges you are going through", Modi said, praising Suu Kyi's "brave leadership" of Myanmar's peace process.
For several years now, India has steered clear of supporting the West's vocal criticism of human rights abuses in Myanmar - both under Modi and earlier, when the Congress was in power, and equally when the military junta ruled in the neighbouring nation and under Suu Kyi.
"When it comes to finding a solution to a special issue, we hope that all stakeholders can work together towards finding a peaceful solution which while respecting the unity and territorial integrity of Myanmar", he said.
"India's democratic experience is relevant to Myanmar". About 1.25 lakh Rohingya refugees have crossed into Bangladesh in the last two weeks after a fresh surge of violence.
Underlining the importance of maritime security, the Prime Minister said, "Myanmar and India, being neighbours, our outlook and focus on security are similar".
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed the Indian diaspora in Myanmar's Yangon city.
