Earlier, Prime Minister Modi had earlier said that India shares Myanmar's concern on extremist violence in the Rakhine state and that he hopes that all stakeholders can find a solution, in which the unity and the territorial integrity of the country is maintained, together.

"We would like to thank India for the strong stand that it has taken with regard to the terrorist threat that came to our country", said Aung San Suu Kyi, to which Prime Minister Modi responded that "India completely understands the challenges".

Modi's first bilateral visit here comes at a time when the Myanmarese government led by Nobel laureate Suu Kyi is facing global pressure over the 125,000 Rohingya Muslims that have poured into Bangladesh in just two weeks after Myanmar's military launched a crackdown in the Rakhine state.

Modi called on President Kyaw soon after he arrived in the country on his first bilateral visit.

India on Wednesday shared its concerns with Myanmar over the situation in the country's Rakhine state where the army has launched a crackdown on the Rohingyas, triggering a mass exodus.

European Union refugee ruling: Hungary and Slovakia must stick or twist
European Union countries agreed in September 2015 to relocate 160,000 refugees in Greece and Italy over two years. Slovakia has recently agreed to accept a few refugees, so it's not included in that action.

Modi, in his joint press statement with Suu Kyi after the talks, said India understands the problems being faced by Myanmar.

Following Wednesday's talks, India and Myanmar signed 11 agreements, including on cooperation in maritime security and coastal surveillance.

Prior to their departure, Indian officials made it clear that Modi is expected to raise the exodus of the ethnic Rohingyas into neighbouring countries.

Rasheed said: "It is shameful and unfortunate that Aung San Suu Kyi who was seen as an icon for her constant fight to uphold democratic traditions and human rights has changed her colors so quickly and is justifying the ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Myanmar".

India and Myanmar were also looking at strengthening existing cooperation in areas of security and counter- terrorism, trade and investment, infrastructure and energy, and culture, Modi had said ahead of his visit.
