The head of Burma's military government, General Than Shwe, will travel to India Sunday for talks.
Indian officials say General Than Shwe's five-day visit will likely focus on strengthening economic cooperation between Burma and New Delhi.
Burmese dissidents living in India say they will protest General Than Shwe's visit, the first by a Burmese head of state to India in 25 years.
Relations between Burma and India soured after 1988, when Burma's military government accused India of giving refuge to Burmese dissidents. Information for this story is provided by REUTERS, AP
