On 27 July 2010 India and Myanmar agreed on "close cooperation" between the security forces of the two countries to tackle terrorism. A treaty on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters was signed. This treaty would be crucial in enabling India to get to insurgents from the Northeast states who continue to take shelter along the India-Myanmar border. Five pacts were signed covering a range of issues like counter-terror cooperation, enhanced energy ties and collaboration in a string of developmental projects. Pacts in the areas of small development projects, science and technology and information cooperation were also signed. A memorandum of understanding was inked, according to which India would assist the restoration of the Ananda temple in Bagan, a renowned Buddhist shrine and a major tourist site in central Myanmar.
