India Reassures Burma on Bodhgaya Bombing
9 July 2013
Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai told his Burmese counterpart Wunna Maung Lwin in Naypyidaw on Monday that his country would share information about its investigation into a bomb attack at the Buddhist holy site of Bodhgaya that left one Burmese pilgrim injured. He also said that the two countries would step up security cooperation in the wake of the incident on Sunday. “Bodhgaya remains a place of peace and pilgrimage,” he reportedly said, according to an official source cited by The Hindustan Times. Ranjan also discussed the series of nine blasts, which have been linked to anti-Muslim violence in Burma, with opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
