External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is scheduled to visit Myanmar on August 22 following the swearing in earlier this year of the new government of Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD)

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval had also visited Myanmar as a special envoy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 16, 2016.

What could be a sensitive diplomatic issue just days before the visit of the Foreign minister is that this is not the first time that there has been rumours of Indian forces entering Myanmar  .

Last years there were reports that Indian forces entered the country after NSCN(K) had ambushed and killed 18 soldiers as a retaliation.

"We will not allow any foreign military operations in Myanmar territory," Zaw Htay, director in then Myanmar President's office had told while adding  "And I want to say this to you – every country must respect the other country's sovereignty."

What could also be a slight embarrassment for the Indian authorities is this tweet by the state's official radio broadcaster All India Radio

Also the DSP of  Mon district superintendent of police,Nagaland  Yangba Konyak was quoted saying this to a leading national daily that  he saw about 30 commandos when they returned adding that "This makes a platoon."

Sushma Swaraj is due to be in Myanmar on the 22nd of August to discuss on the rich bilateral content of the relationship as well as plans for the upcoming BRICS-BIMSTEC Outreach Summit in India.

She is supposed to meet U Htin Kyaw, President of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar and holding discussions with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi
