The report was released by the Australian Centre for International Justice and Justice for Myanmar on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) said, “In 2019, the government of India hosted the Myanmar general Min Aung Hlaing and Mundra Port was only one such location out of the multiple sites on this visit…”

The Yangon International Terminal project is “fully owned and developed” by APSEZ.

“We are watching the situation in Myanmar carefully and will engage with the relevant authorities and stakeholders to seek their advice…,” the spokesperson added.
