Myanmar is making arrangement to open soon an embassy in Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia in the Middle East to start carrying out its diplomatic undertakings, the local Weekly Eleven News reported Monday.

The introduction of an embassy in Riyadh will bring the total number of permanent diplomatic missions of Myanmar in the Middle East to three after Egypt and Israel.

Saudi Arabia, which established diplomatic links with Myanmar in August 2004, had opened its embassy in Yangon in December 2005.

In May this year, Myanmar Deputy Foreign Minister U Kyaw Thu visited Saudi Arabia and had discussions with his Saudi counterpart on the two countries' trade and Myanmar workers' job opportunities in Saudi Arabia.

According to the foreign ministry, Myanmar has established diplomatic relations with 96 countries in the world since its independence in 1948.

Myanmar has so far set up embassies in 30 countries and two permanent missions in New York and Geneva, and three consulates- general in China's Hong Kong and Kunming and India's Kolkata respectively.

Meanwhile, 28 countries have their embassies in Myanmar. In addition, China and India have respectively set up consulates- general in Myanmar's second largest city of Mandalay, while Switzerland's in Yangon and Bangladesh's in Sittway.
