Beijing: Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing said here Friday that China is ready to step up efforts to promote bilateral ties with Myanmar.
During talks with his Myanmar counterpart U Nyan Win, Li said current China-Myanmar relations are maintaining good momentum and that bilateral exchanges and cooperation have been expanding continuously.
The Chinese government will strengthen bilateral high-level exchanges and expand cooperation in various sectors including economy, trade and drug-control.
On the domestic situation of Myanmar, Li elaborated on the Chinese government’s principled stance and hoped that Myanmar could maintain stability and development and continue to push forward the national reconciliation process.
Nyan Win said the peoples of Myanmar and China have brotherly friendship, adding that the Myanmar government and people appreciate the Chinese government’s assistance.
“Myanmar would like to make joint efforts with China to further the existing friendship between the two nations,” he said.
Nyan Win reiterated Myanmar’s adherence to the one-China policy and firm support for the Anti-Secession Law adopted on March 14, 2005 by the National People’s Congress of China.
The two sides also exchanged views on bilateral and other issues of common concern.
It is Nyan Win’s first visit to China, which he started Wednesday as Li’s guest, since he took the office foreign minister last September.
