08:04, June 14, 2012

BEIJING, June 13 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Li Keqiang met with visiting Myanmar Foreign Minister U Wunna Maung Lwin on Wednesday, pledging to boost the two countries' all-round strategic cooperative partnership.

"Amid complex and profound changes in the regional and global situation, it is of vital importance to further consolidate and enhance China-Myanmar relations," Li said.

China would like to work closely with Myanmar to maintain relations and take a long-term perspective to develop bilateral ties based on the fundamental interests of both sides, he said.

Li said China and Myanmar are both developing countries that must shoulder the arduous tasks of developing their economies and improving their people's livelihoods.

Expanding China-Myanmar trade cooperation on the basis of mutual benefit is a set policy of the Chinese government, said the vice premier.

Li called on the two countries to expand substantial cooperation, properly settle existing problems and protect the legitimate rights of enterprise to ensure smooth progress of bilateral cooperative projects.

U Wunna Maung Lwin, who is on his first China trip as Myanmar foreign minister, said his government highly values its relations with China and will facilitate major cooperative projects between the two countries.

Myanmar will continue its support for China on issues regarding China's core interests, he added.

U Wunna Maung Lwin is paying an official visit to China from June 9 to 14 as the guest of Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi.
