Visiting senior United States diplomat Joseph Yun met with Myanmar foreign minister U Wunna Maung Lwin in Nay Pyi Taw Wednesday, state radio and television reported.

The two sides held discussions on boosting relations between the two countries and mutually beneficial cooperation.

Yun, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and the Pacific, also met with deputy speaker of the House of Representatives (Lower House) U Nanda Kyaw Swar at the parliament house in the new capital.

According to official sources, Yun is scheduled to fly to Yangon Thursday where he will meet with noted political figure Aung San Suu Kyi.

Yun is also expected to consult a variety of other stakeholders, including representatives of political parties, non-governmental organizations, ethnic minorities, as well as the business community.

Yun arrived Nay Pyi Taw earlier Wednesday on an official visit to Myanmar to continue engagement with the Myanmar new government.

It is Yun's second visit to Myanmar, the first being in December last year.
