"We welcome the Indian Army's strike on insurgent outfits in Myanmar early on Tuesday. It was a welcome development. Such attacks should be continued in future too to flush out the militants completely," he said at a press conference here.

Gogoi added such attack would help in bringing durable peace in the region. The Chief Minister cited Army's offensive on the insurgent outfits would also help in protecting territorial integrity of the country.

He also mentioned the Army action will send right signal across all elements looking out to carry subversive activities.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked his Cabinet colleague Jitendra Singh to go to Manipur to take stock of situation there, a day after Army's retaliatory strike in Myanmar that neutralised insurgents believed to be behind the ambush in the state that killed 18 soldiers.
