The Burma Centre Delhi and the Journalists' Forum, Assam have organized an interactive session on ‘India's Foreign Policy on Burma: A Northeast Perspective’ at the Guwahati Press Club auditorium on July 4. The meeting will start at 11 am, where few Burmese exiles and a number of distinguished Guwahati-citizens will participate and share their experience and ideas. Burma or Myanmar is under the military rule for four decades, where the opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi had been under detention for many years. Lately the Nobel Peace Laureate is inside the bar since May 14. The Burma Centre Delhi considers the support from the people of Northeast India as crucial for the democratic movement in their country. Moreover, voices from the region in support of Suu Kyi becomes very urgent, feels Kim, the executive director of BCD.
