Myanmar will increase bilateral cooperation with the United States to combat human trafficking, according to a police press release.
Discussions were held in Nay Pyi Taw earlier this month between Myanmar's Police Major General Zaw Win and United States representative for combating human trafficking, Luis CdeBaca.
The talks titled "U.S.-Myanmar Trafficking in Persons" covered a variety of issues, including forced labor, sex trafficking, and the unlawful recruitment and use of child soldiers.
A joint plan was also set up during their meeting. Both governments agreed the dialogue was very productive and pledged their continued commitment to address serious crime and human rights issues.
