BEIJING - China-Thailand ties have brought benefits to the people of the two countries and made an important contribution to regional peace and development, Vice-President Xi Jinping said during his visit to Thailand on Thursday.

Xi met Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Thursday. The two leaders witnessed the signing of agreements on Memorandums of Understanding on the development of a high-speed railway between Bangkok and Chiang Mai, the development of a railway system connecting Association of Southeast Asian Nations member countries and flood and drought prevention measures, according to Thai media.

Thailand is the second and last stop of Xi's ongoing Asia tour, which also took him to Vietnam.

Xi is scheduled to meet Thai Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and heads of the Privy Council and the National Assembly of Thailand on Friday, and he will also visit a local middle school in a region hit by the recent flooding.

China donated $1 million and supplies worth a total of 80.6 million yuan ($12.7 million) after the country was hit by its worst floods in 50 years, according to the Chinese embassy in Thailand.

Excellent!Like with New Russia, China should pursue the "Good-Neighborly Friendship and Cooperation Treaty" with Asean countries bordering China. With the exception of the Philippines and India - which are currently under the evil spell of that Washington Witch, the goals are achievable.Deepening economic co-operation and signing bilateral trades in non-US$ would the first step towards restoring peace and harmony in this part of the World.Seize the Hour! Seize the Day!
