President Xi Jinping said Tuesday that China is willing to continue to provide Myanmar with necessary assistance in its peace progress.

Xi made the remarks when meeting with Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, who attended the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation held in Beijing on May 14-15.

He called on the two sides to jointly maintain peace and stability on the border.

Xi noted that the two countries have a deeply rooted friendship and extensive common interests, and the two sides reached important consensus on all-round strategic cooperation in the new era during Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw's visit to China last month.

He said China and Myanmar should boost their ties on this good momentum to advance the construction of key projects, economic corridors, economic zones and infrastructure.

Aung San Suu Kyi commended the Belt and Road Initiative as one that will bring peace, reconciliation and prosperity to the region and the world at large.

She said Myanmar is willing to work with China on peace and stability on the border.
