Vice President Xi Jinping met with Secretary-General of Myanmar's ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) U Htay Oo on Tuesday, vowing to boost party-to-party ties.

"China has always handled its relations with Myanmar from a strategic perspective," Xi told U Htay Oo at the Great Hall of the People.

He said China is ready to work closely with Myanmar to fulfill the goals set in the joint statement that established the China-Myanmar comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership, which was created during Myanmar President U Thein Sein's China visit in May last year.

The vice president hailed the sound development of China-Myanmar ties in recent years, saying the two sides have expanded exchanges and cooperation in multiple areas.

Xi said cementing political trust and win-win cooperation between both sides is not only in the fundamental interests of both countries, but will also contribute to development and stability in the region.

Xi urged the ruling parties of both countries to make joint efforts for the greater development of bilateral ties in the coming years.

U Htay Oo expressed appreciation for China's support for Myanmar's development over the years. He said Myanmar will maintain friendly policies toward China, adding that the USDP hopes to enhance exchanges and cooperation with the Communist Party of China (CPC).
