Aung San Suu Kyi hopes Myanmar-China relations get better and better

YANGON, Jul 3 — Myanmar opposition leader Dr. Aung San Suu Kyi expressed hope on Tuesday that Myanmar-China relations will continue to get better and better.

Suu Kyi, the NLD chairwoman and a parliamentarian, made the remarks when meeting the press at the headquarters of the National League for Democracy (NLD) here to brief on her recent 17-day tour to five countries in Europe.

On evaluation of Sino-Myanmar relations over the past decades when asked by domestic and foreign journalists, Suu Kyi said the relations between Myanmar and China have been traditionally good since Myanmar regained independence under a parliament democracy system and Myanmar was also one of the earliest countries that recognized the government of the People’s Republic of China.

She said different systems of the two countries could not affect the two countries’ relations. She also maintained that her NLD party would always endeavour for the good relations with China, expecting that it would bear as much fruits as it endeavours.

With regard to foreign investment, she reiterated the need for transparency and accountability, saying that then Myanmar people will benefit from it and contracts with foreign companies or states can be protected.

She held that she would travel to both the West and the East as far as she is invited and would always remain intimate in mind with those countries which she has not visited yet.

Suu Kyi returned to Yangon on last Saturday from a historic tour to five European countries, namely Switzerland, Norway, Britain, Ireland and France, where she sought for political and economic support to back the democratic transition in her country
