BEIJING - Xu Qiliang, vice chairman of China's Central Military Commission, met with Myanmar's air force commander-in-chief Khin Aung Myint on Tuesday, pledging to boost cooperation between the two militaries.

Hailing the traditional friendship between China and Myanmar, Xu said the two militaries have cooperated on high-level interactions, technology and personnel training in past years.

"Looking ahead, we should continue strategic communication, further practical cooperation, strengthen coordination on multilateral occasions, and work together to safeguard tranquility and stability in border areas to contribute to the development of bilateral relationship," said the Chinese general.

Khin Aung Myint voiced his gratitude for China's enduring support for the Myanmar armed forces, and said that Myanmar will continue to enhance cooperation with China to advance military-to-military ties.
