Nay Pyi Taw, May 10 - Myanmar and India signed an agreement here to prevent insurgency and curb human trafficking through the border areas of the two neighbouring countries, a media report said Saturday.

According to a memorandum of understanding - signed here Friday, the two countries would take measures to bring in peace and stability in the border regions, Xinhua reported.

The MoU also called for exchange of information and coordination between their armed forces for border security to check illegal trespassing.
