BANGKOK, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Thai Prime Minister and Defense Minister Yingluck Shinawatra met with Fan Changlong, vice chairman of China's Central Military Commission here on Wednesday. The two sides agreed to further strengthen military relations.

Noting that Thailand and China have established friendly cooperative relations by treating each other with trust and sincerity, Yingluck said the armed forces of the two countries have also made substantial achievements in their cooperation in various fields through frequent high-level visits and continuous friendly exchanges.

The Thai government and military highly value their relations with the Chinese side and are willing to increase bilateral exchanges and cooperation, she said.

They have expressed appreciation over the active roles China has been playing in international and regional issues, added the prime minister.

On his part, Fan hailed the long-standing neighborly friendship between China and Thailand, which is boosted by their geographical proximity, cultural similarities and close kinship.
