New Delhi: India has said in a statement at the UN Human Rights Council that the “precarious humanitarian situation and escalation of violence” in Myanmar has led to influx of thousands of persons into India’s northeastern states.


The statement was delivered by Kshitij Tyagi, First Secretary of the Permanent Mission of India, during the interactive dialogue on the Oral Update of the High Commissioner on the situation of human rights in Myanmar.


India said that as “an immediate neighbour, and friend of the people of Myanmar,” it is deeply concerned with the situation in Myanmar.


New Delhi also claimed that the situation has bearings on crimes.


“The ongoing situation also has direct implications in the form of increased transnational crimes such as drug and human trafficking. We are doing our best to deal with this situation,” the Indian statement said.


India is in the process of fencing its border with Myanmar and discontinue the free movement agreement.


It added that India has always accorded a “high priority to maintenance of peace and stability in Myanmar” and its economic development.


“India remains steadfast in its support to Myanmar’s transition towards inclusive federal democracy. We also reiterate the need for arriving at peaceful solutions that are Myanmar-led and Myanmar-owned,” India’s statement further said.
