After connecting with Bangladesh through Tripura, Indian Railways plans to link up to Myanmar’s railway network via Moreh in Manipur as part of the Trans-Asian Railway Network, India's railway minister Suresh Prabhu has said.
“Our integrated plan under the Trans-Asian Railway Network (TARN) is to connect to Northeast India which has become landlocked since the 1947 partition. The best way to connect the Northeast with the rest of India as well as for bringing holistic development to this region is to create multiple connectivity with our neighbouring nations in this region,” Prabhu told reporters in Agartala , the capital of Tripura state, after flagging off a train to Delhi on Sunday.

Good step. Better rail connectivity with all the neighbouring countries will increase bilateral trade, communications and relationships with them in addition to benefitting our economy.
More over it is a diplomatic necessity as well, especially keeping in mind the recent moves made by China in this regard.
