Myanmar leaders vow to implement cooperation projects with China

The Myanmar government attaches importance to the smooth implementation of the cooperation projects between Myanmar and China, Myanmar President U Thein Sein said Monday.

China and Myanmar always carry out friendly exchanges on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, Thein Sein told Zhang Guoqing, head of China North Industries Group Corporation (NORINCO Group) as they met at the presidential office.

Thein Sein said he reached consensus with the Chinese leadership to raise the "Paukphaw" (kinsfolk) friendship to a comprehensive strategic partnership during his visit to China in May 2010.

Myanmar Parliament Speaker U Shwe Mann also met Zhang on Monday. Shwe Mann said his country will responsibly implement the agreements between governments and between companies, including that between the NORINCO Group and the Myanmar side, stressing bilateral cooperation will not weaken despite some difficulties.
