Wikileaks: BSF-Bangladesh Rifles cooperation and Indo-Burmese cooperation

A 2007 US Government cable reporting on a meeting between a US diplomat and an Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) official reports on the progress of cooperation between the Bangladesh rifles and the Border Security Forces.

There is also mention of rumoured Indian government military support to the Burmese junta in exchange for Burmese cooperation on Indian insurgent groups in their territory.  The MEA official states that the Indo-Burma relationship has been reduced to cooperation on northeast Indian insurgent groups alone, with India failing to win much-prized natural resources contracts in that country.
