Chinese Defense Minister Meets Myanmese Guests

Chinese Defense Minister met Wednesday with Myint Swe, commander-in-chief of the Air Force of Myanmar, and his party.

Chi, also a vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission and a state councilor, said China and Myanmar have worked together to safeguard the interest of developing countries since the two countries forged diplomatic ties 51 years ago.

The Five Principles of Peaceful Co-existence jointly advocated by leaders of the two countries have become the principles guiding the international relations, he said.

The Chinese government appreciates the Myanmese government's adherence to the one-China policy, said Chi, adding that China is willing to develop friendly relations between Chinese and Myanmese militaries in all fields in the 21st century.

Myint Swe said that Myanmar and China are good neighbors, and Myanmar attaches importance to developing cooperative ties with China and its armed forces.

He expressed the hope that the two sides continue to increase cooperation and exchanges.
