After two weeks of rising tensions on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border, the two sides reached an agreement in Naypyidaw over the ongoing border crisis. In a nine-point statement, the two countries agreed to share information regarding border issues and establish a direct channel of communication between senior officials from both sides. They also vowed to work together to crack down on the illegal narcotics trade across their common frontier.
The two sides agreed to set up a border liaison office to curb cross-border crime, and to educate people living in the border area about the demarcation. In a show of friendship, the two sides will also conduct goodwill visits.
