Foreign minister U E Maung’s Visit to India 1949
This photograph shows Burmese Minister of Foreign Affairs, U E Maung, arriving at Delhi airport in September 1949, together with the Burmese ambassador to India, Sir M.A. Maung Gyi, and other Burmese and Indian officials. U E Maung and Sir M.A. Maung Gyi are both smoking cheroots, something not common at VIP airport arrivals any more.
