The government has said it would deport all Rohingyas living in India illegally but the Supreme Court has said that it will hear on September 11 a plea seeking a direction to the central government not to deport about 40,000 such refugees back to Myanmar. The MoUs were signed after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held wide-ranging talks with Myanmar's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi.

She also mentioned images of killings posted on Twitter by Turkey's deputy prime minister, Mehmet Simsek, which he later deleted because they were not from Myanmar.

He had visited Myanmar earlier in 2014 for the ASEAN-India Summit, but this is his first bilateral visit.
