08:32, December 20, 2011

NAY PYI TAW, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo said Monday China always supports Myanmar to walk on a development path chosen in line with its own national conditions.

During his talks with Myanmar President U Thein Sein, Dai said the Chinese government adheres to a friendly policy toward Myanmar and the time-tested good neighborliness between the two nations has become an outstanding example for conducting state-to-state relations based on the five principles of peaceful coexistence.

He hopes the two sides could properly handle the problems in their cooperation by developing and expanding their cooperative ties so as to achieve better progress in all areas of cooperation.

Dai lauded the efforts the Myanmar government has made to push forward domestic political reconciliation and improve foreign relations. He believed the Myanmar government has the wisdom and ability to address the problems and challenges in the way forward.

A peaceful, stable, independent and prosperous Myanmar is in the common interests of the two nations, he added.

U Thein Sein said Myanmar highly values bilateral relations with China and will not allow any damage to the ties. The government is willing to push forward bilateral cooperation in energy, agriculture and major projects to boost their comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation.

They made the remarks during Dai's attendance at the 4th Summit of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS)-Economic Cooperation Program in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar's administrative capital.

Dai said China is an active participant, staunch supporter and one of the beneficiaries of the GMS cooperation. China will continue to be a part of the cooperation, increasing investment and making more contributions.

He also said China will take into account the interests of both the upper and lower Mekong subregion, and work with other countries in the region to jointly protect, utilize and manage the river and boost the security of its waterway, so as to facilitate development and improve people's livlihoods along the river.

On the same day, Dai and Myanmar Vice-President Sai Mauk Kham attended the opening of the Nay Pyi Taw International Airport.
