Turkey's first lady Emine Erdoğan will visit Bangladesh on September 6 amid the ongoing tragedy of tens of thousands Rohingya Muslims forced to flee the violence in Myanmar, Deputy Prime Minister Hakan Çavuşoğlu has said. "It's necessary for us to work together towards the security of our land and maritime border", Prime Minister Modi said.

India and Myanmar were also looking at strengthening existing cooperation in areas of security and counter- terrorism, trade and investment, infrastructure and energy, and culture, Modi had said ahead of his visit.

Speaking with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Suu Kyi blamed Rohingya militants, who attacked police posts in August, for spreading false information about the crisis with the intention of destabilising the region.

"India's democratic experience is relevant to Myanmar".

Thousands of Rohingyas are crossing over into Bangladesh - where they are sparingly given refugee status - to escape from the violence in Rakhine state.

Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Modi presented a reproduction of an 1841 map of a stretch of the River Salween and a sculpture of Bodhi tree to President of Myanmar U Htin Kyaw.

He said he was sure that if the government appeals for funds for Rohingya Muslims, they will collect tens of millions of dollars within days.

The Myanmar leader added, "The respective fathers of our Independence movement were close to each other and I think this closeness has been maintained throughout the seven decades and we truly believe that this will continue to be maintained in the years to come".

Before heading for Myanmar, Prime Minister Modi visited China to attend the ninth BRICS Summit, wherein he held bilateral talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Speaking on private broadcaster ATV, Çavuşoğlu confirmed that the first lady will have "close contact" with Rohingya Muslims who had escaped from Myanmar. Myanmar is one of India's strategic neighbours and shares a 1,640-km-long border with a number of northeastern states including militancy-hit Nagaland and Manipur.
