(KPL) President Bounnhang Vorachit, accompanied by his spouse and a delegation of senior officials, visited the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in response to an invitation from his Myanmar counterpart Htin Kyaw on Aug 5.

A welcoming ceremony for President Bounnhang, his spouse and his entourage was held at the Presidential Palace of Myanmar in Naypyidaw.

A bilateral meeting was held after the welcoming ceremony where the visiting President and his host highly valued the outcomes of the sound relations and cooperation recorded by the two countries over the past years. The discussion between the two state leaders also covered regional and international issues of common interest.

Both sides agreed to translate into reality the agreements reached at the 11th meeting of the Laos-Myanmar Joint Commission for Cooperation and the agreement reached by the state leaders of the two countries during the Myanmar President’s visit to Laos in May.

They agreed to work together to seek ways to promote trade, investment, education, tourism, and to reopen direct flights between Vientiane and Yangon or Luang Prabang and Bagan, as well as to promote cooperation under both bilateral and multilateral frameworks on a win-win basis.

The two presidents also witnessed the signing of an agreement on the management of the Lao Myanmar Friendship Bridge which will be opened for public use in the near future.

The agreement was signed by Foreign Minister Saleumxay Kommasith and his Myanmar counterpart Aung San Suu Kyi.

The president also met with Myanmar’s Upper House Speaker Mahn Win Khaing Than.

Mahn Win Khaing Than highly valued the visit by President Bounnhang as a significant contribution to enhancing the longstanding friendly relations and cooperation between Laos and Myanmar.

In reply, President Bounnhang expressed his belief that the longstanding relations and cooperation between the two countries would be increasingly strengthened.

The president also visited well-known cultural tourist attractions including the Uppatasanti Pagoda and White Elephant Park in Naypyidaw before his home trip in the evening of the same day.
