New Delhi, Mar 15: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today saluted U Htin Kyaw on being chosen as the principal regular citizen President of Myanmar in decades and passed on his yearning to work with him to reinforce the reciprocal ties.
“Congrats and all the best to U Htin Kyaw on being chosen President of Myanmar! Will cooperate to reinforce India-Myanmar ties,” Modi tweeted.
His welcome came not long after Myanmar’s officials chose 69-year-old Htin Kyaw, a nearby assistant and long-term companion of Aung San Suu Kyi to end up the nation’s first non military personnel President in decades amid which military managed the country.
MPs ejected into acclaim after triumph was declared after a protracted poll include by hand the capital Naypyidaw in which Htin Kyaw took 360 of 652 votes cast.
Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy won a pounding triumph in the surveys in November last, permitting her gathering to overwhelm Myanmar’s two administrative houses.
Be that as it may, the military remains an effective power in the Southeast Asian country and has declined to change a statement in the junta-time constitution that banishes Suu Kyi from top political office.
