Xi Offers Chinese Assistance for Myanmar Peace Keeping Plans

BEIJING – Chinese President Xi Jinping met Myanmar’s state counselor Aung San Suu Kyi on Tuesday and expressed China’s wish to assist Myanmar’s peace process after decades of conflicts between ethnic minority guerrillas.

Following his meeting with Suu Kyi, Xi urged Myanmar to cooperate with China to maintain peace and stability at their border, where conflicts are ongoing as due to an insurgency by the Kokang people that has forced thousands of people to take refuge in China.

Suu Kyi, the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner, participated in the recently concluded New Silk Road Forum – a Chinese initiative to unite the country with the rest of the world through transport and telecommunications networks – held in Beijing on May 14-15.

Myanmar is one of China’s key targets in the plan, given that it has already laid oil and gas pipelines there, connected to the Yunnan province in southern China, and there are also plans to build railway lines.

Suu Kyi said Myanmar wanted to work with China on peace-keeping at the border, adding that the “Belt and Road” plan would bring peace, reconciliation and prosperity to the region and to the world.
