The construction of the Trans-Asian Highway connecting India to other South Asian countries was a priority for the government, Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai said here on Friday.
"It is important to make this connection to the rest of South Asia, this is a priority with us. We have been discussing the highways with ASEAN and working things out. The stretch that we are concentrating on is the Indo-Myanmar stretch. The rest of the countries will have to look at their own stretches," Mathai said.
The concern the government did have was the present condition of roads within Manipur, the Foreign Secretary added.
