India's top diplomat has held talks with Burma's military leader, Senior General Than Shwe.
A statement by the Indian Embassy in Rangoon says Natwar Singh and General Shwe held discussions Saturday on such issues as joint economic development and security. The embassy says the two men agreed to combat terrorist activities along their shared border region.
Mr. Singh was scheduled to travel to Mandalay later on Saturday to meet with members of the city's Indian community.
He also held talks in Rangoon Friday with his Burmese counterpart, Nyan Win, and Prime Minister Soe Win.
Relations between India and Burma soured after the junta's brutal crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators in 1988, but they have improved significantly since then, as New Delhi has pursued trade and investment opportunities with Burma.
