Aung San Suu Kyi, chair of the National League for Democracy (NLD), Myanmar, will head a delegation that will be in China from June 10 to 14.

The delegation will visit the country at the invitation of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the International Department of the CPC Central Committee said on its website on Friday.

"This is an important party-to-party exchange for the CPC. State and Party leaders will meet with the delegation," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei said at a daily news briefing.

Party-to-party exchange is "an important component" of China-Myanmar relations. China has maintained long-term friendly exchanges with all parties in Myanmar, including the NLD, Hong said.

"We hope this visit will strengthen communication and understanding between both sides and further the friendly cooperation in various fields," the spokesperson added.
