Myanmar and India will speed up all-round renovation of the Arnanda Pagoda in Myanmar's ancient city of Bagan under a memorandum of understanding on cultural cooperation signed between the two countries, a state daily reported Wednesday.

The swift implementation of the all-round restoration of the pagoda was discussed between Myanmar union deputy minister of culture Daw Sandar Khin and Indian ambassador Dr. Villur Sundararajan Seshadri at the office of the Ministry of Culture in Nay Pyi Taw Tuesday, said the New Light of Myanmar.

The MoU on the move was among the five documents signed during a goodwill visit to India by former Myanmar top leader Senior- General Than Shwe in July 2010.

Myanmar and India, being neighbors, geographical and cultural relations between the two countries provide further impetus for bilateral friendly relations, Myanmar official media said.
