Lao Prime Minister Thongsing Thammavong will pay an official visit to Myanmar soon, an official announcement from Nay Pyi Taw said on Friday without mentioning the specific date of his visit.

At the invitation of Myanmar President U Thein Sein, Thongsing will make the trip after a new government was installed in Myanmar.

In October last year, former Myanmar top leader Senior-General Than Shwe paid a state visit to Vientiane before Myanmar's general election and had discussions with Laotian leaders on mutual friendship and cooperation between the two nations.

The two sides touched on cooperation in economic and social sectors, including construction of the Myanmar-Laos-Vietnam road, building of the Myanmar-Laos Mekong River Friendship Bridge, anti- narcotic drives as well as forming Myanmar-Laos regional border committee in order to address border issues on a timely basis.

Myanmar and Laos, sharing border of over 230 kilometers, established diplomatic relations in 1955.
