Pilgrims, traders and adventurous holidaymakers can soon look forward to the opening of a new border gate between India and Myanmar, reports the Myanmar Times.
Myanmar’s Immigration Minister U Thein Swe said the new international border gate at Tamu, Sagaing Region, would open soon. He said the Indian authorities were “enthusiastic” about the opening.
“We’ve already met with the Indian ambassador, who said his Government wanted to open the gate. We expect it will be open within the next four months,” he said, adding that the signing of the agreement was now under discussion between the two governments’ foreign ministries.
