India is expected to press Burma's government in upcoming talks to help crack down on Indian rebel groups operating on Burmese soil.
Indian officials say they have new reports that insurgents from northeastern India are operating on Burma's side of the border. The rebels are fighting for an independent tribal homeland in India's northeastern state of Nagaland, which borders Burma.
The four-day talks in New Delhi will open Wednesday with India's Home Secretary V.K. Duggal and Burma's Deputy Minister Brigadier General Phone Swe.
Delegates also are expected to discuss joint efforts to combat drug trafficking and arms smuggling in the region. They also plan to discuss road and power projects.
