On April 6, 2016, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met in Naypyidaw with President U Htin Kyaw of Myanmar. Chairperson of the National League for Democracy (NLD) and Foreign Minister Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar was present.

Wang Yi firstly conveyed greetings from President Xi Jinping to U Htin Kyaw. Wang Yi expressed that Myanmar has achieved the smooth transfer of the government, and the Chinese leadership entrusted me with visiting this country at the first moment, highlighting the importance China attaches to and the support China offers to the new government of Myanmar. China hopes and believes that the NLD will sincerely cooperate and join hands with all parties to open up a new future for the country. China will always pursue good neighborly policy towards Myanmar, and stands ready to carry forward the traditional friendship with Myanmar's new government, enhance high-level exchanges, strengthen political mutual trust and further deepen the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries. China and Myanmar, which are adjoined by mountains and rivers and highly complementary in economy, are natural cooperation partners. China, based on Myanmar's development requirements, is willing to step up efforts to dovetail its development strategies with those of Myanmar, and actively explore further cooperation in people's livelihood, production capacity, infrastructure and other fields. China, in accordance with Myanmar's willingness, also stands ready to play a positive role in promoting peace and facilitating talks in northern Myanmar.

U Htin Kyaw asked Wang Yi to convey his greetings to President Xi Jinping. U Htin Kyaw expressed that President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory message to him soon after he was elected as the president of Myanmar and the Chinese Foreign Minister visited Myanmar immediately after the formation of Myanmar's new government. This showed China's support for Myanmar's new government, and Myanmar appreciates that. Just now the Chinese Foreign Minister put forward many good proposals on enhancing practical cooperation between the two countries, demonstrating China's sincerity to further develop Myanmar-China relations. Myanmar and China enjoy time-honored friendship and Myanmar will never forget China's supports and assistance in various aspects. At present, Myanmar's new government has a lot of work to do in developing economy and improving people's livelihood, and the two countries can cooperate in many fields. Myanmar's new government is willing to work together with China to further promote the bilateral friendship, deepen cooperation in all fields, and strengthen communication and cooperation in international and regional affairs. Myanmar also stands ready to continue cooperating with China to safeguard peace and stability at the border areas between the two countries.
