Union Home Minister of India visited Moreh trade zone project in Manipur State bordering with Chin State of Myanmar, on Friday, according to the reports.
Rajnath Singh, accompanied by his deputy minister Kiren Rijiju, visited the ‘Friendship Bridge’ that connects the two countries on the banks of Lokchao River.
He remarked that the trade centre could help resolving border issues with Myanmar, saying that India-Myanmar border offers unique opportunity to open links and routes for trade and commerce with East Asian countries.
A Manipur government official said, “Rajnath Singh along with Kiren Rijiju and home ministry officials visited Moreh along the India-Myanmar border,” adding that they supervised the integrated check post which is under construction to promote bilateral trade and to facilitate border issues.
