BEIJING: China Thursday pledged to boost strategic cooperation with Myanmar.

Top political advisor Jia Qinglin hailed the bilateral exchanges and enhanced trade cooperation during a meeting with Myanmar's visiting House of Representatives speaker Thura U Shwe Mann. He arrived in Beijing Wednesday on a five-day visit to the country.

Jia, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), said changes in the global situation have brought opportunities and challenges for both countries as they work to deepen their relations.

He urged both sides to maintain high-level contacts, strengthen strategic coordination and draw up a plan for comprehensive and strategic cooperation, Xinhua reported.

As a friendly neighbour of Myanmar, China supports Myanmar's development path and will continue to back its efforts to maintain stability and development, he said.
