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.
