Suu Kyi visit aims to build ties between Myanmar and China

Diplomacy: Aung San Suu Kyi in China

U Win Htein said that prior to Aung San Suu Kyi's second visit to China, a delegation of the Communist Party of China (CPC) just visited Myanmar, which is beneficial to the development of both countries as well as both parties' relations. How will it affect China-Myanmar relations?

Myanmar's former military rulers were shunned by the West and close to China, which has been on a diplomatic offensive since Suu Kyi's government came to power in April, aiming to forge good ties with its resource-rich southern neighbour.

Her visit to China will last four days.

Ji Qiufeng, a professor of global relations at Nanjing University, said Suu Kyi has made a smart choice by visiting China first, ahead of other non-Asean countries.

Elements in China have for years maintained contacts with northern Myanmar rebel groups and militias, some of which are led by ethnic Chinese commanders, so China's help could be key as Suu Kyi's government seeks to promote peace and stability in lawless border regions.

Official title While Ms Suu Kyi is Myanmar's de facto leader, she can not take the title of president because of constitutional restrictions.

Suu Kyi visited China as a democratic opposition party leader past year.

However, many people in Myanmar do not have a warm opinion of their neighbour, as they view China's extensive investments in the country during the decades of military junta rule as aggressive and as bullying.
