New Delhi: In response to the escalating violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, India issued its first advisory on Tuesday, urging its citizens to refrain from traveling to the region due to the deteriorating security situation.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) highlighted the current challenges, citing disruptions in the telecommunication network and a severe scarcity of essential commodities in the area.

The MEA emphasized the gravity of the situation, stating, “In view of the deteriorating security situation, disruption of means of telecommunications, including landlines, and severe scarcity of essential commodities, all Indian citizens are advised not to travel to the Rakhine State of Myanmar.”

“In addition to the already fenced 10 km in Moreh, Manipur, fence works covering approximately 20 km in Manipur have also been approved, and the work will start soon,” Shah further stated.

The announcement follows Chief Minister N Biren Singh’s recent meeting with Shah in New Delhi, during which Singh mentioned that crucial decisions were imminent for the welfare of the people of Manipur.
