China's top political advisor Jia Qinglin met with Myanmar's speaker of the Union Parliament U Khin Aung Myint here on Monday, saying China is willing to make joint efforts with Myanmar to lift the bilateral ties to a new high.

Jia, who arrived in Myanmar for a 4-day visit, said China attaches great importance to China-Myanmar relations and is ready to make joint efforts with the neighboring country to push bilateral ties forward towards an all-round and in-depth development in various sectors.

In recent years, the China-Myanmar neighborly and friendly ties have developed in a sound trend as mutual political trust has been continuously increased and practical cooperation in various fields has been producing results, said Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

China now is Myanmar's second largest trading partner.

Noting that both China and Myanmar are confronted with the mission of development, Jia said China is ready to exchange experience on government administration and socio-economic development.

China will as always support Myanmar in choosing its own development path in line with its domestic status and help safeguard Myanmar's legitimate right in the international arena, Jia said.

U Khin Aung Myint, also speaker of the House of Nationalities, recalled that since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Myamar and China, the two countries have as always respected and supported each other.

The high-level reciprocal visits have further pushed the level of cooperation in various sectors, he said.

Myanmar would like to make joint efforts with China to consolidate the two countries' friendship and further the cooperative ties, he said, hoping that China will continue to support the country's development.

On Monday night, Jia met with Yangon region Chief Minister U Myint Swe in Yangon.
