India, China to reopen Stilwell road via Myanmar

Progress? India, China to reopen Stilwell road via Myanmar
China and India are actively working on plans to reopen the Stilwell Road through Myanmar, which would reduce the distance between the two nations from 6,000 km to just 1,300 km, the state media reported on Wednesday.

The Stilwell Road, a strategic supply route between Assam and China's Yunnan province via Myanmar built in the World War II by Chinese and American troops, will soon reopen.
The "6,000 km" distance refers to shipping having to transit the Malacca Strait and other areas to get to China.
