Еще they discussed issues including fighting against terror and improving security. Modi extended his support to Myanmar's state counsellor in solving what he reportedly deemed to be «extremist violence» in Rakhine. The resurfacing of violence in Myanmar is being blamed on last week's attack on the country's police forces that left 12 officers dead.
