Burma PM due on 4th April in Dhaka

Dhaka, March 25
: Burma Prime Minister Khin Nyunt arrives in Dhaka on April 4 on a three-days official visit to Bangladesh aimed at improving ties with the two countries, foreign office sources said yesterday.

During the visit the two Prime Minister will hold official talks covering the entire gamut of bilateral relations as well as regional and international issues of common concern.

Matters relating to expansion of trade and economic cooperation between the two countries are expected to figure prominently in the discussion, as will be the ongoing repatriation of Burmese Muslim refugees.

The two leaders are likely to review the proposal for Bangladesh-Burma highway and take concrete steps towards implementation of the project.

The relation between Bangladesh and Burma has been improving since Khaleda Zia's government comes to power in Bangladesh.

It is Khin Nyunt's first visit to Bangladesh after he became prime minister.#
