External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will visit Myanmar next week during which she will meet with the top leadership of the country including State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi.


This would be India's first high profile visit after Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy party won a historic landslide election last year that finally brought an end to five decades of military rule.


Swaraj will be in Myanmar on August 21 on a one-day visit.


She was earlier scheduled to visit the country in May but the trip was cancelled at the last moment because the minister was not well.


She would be aiming to strengthen Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of 'Act East Policy'.


In recent years, both countries have worked on their bilateral ties on several fronts.
