Nay Pyi Taw, 17 Nov — Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing on Monday led a ceremony to welcome Lieutenant General Sengnuan Saiyalath, Minister of National Defence of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
The welcoming ceremony was attended senior military officials of Myanmar, the Laotian ambassador to Myanmar and military attaché of Laos.
At the meeting, the visiting defence minister said that although the global and regional situations are technically peaceful and stable, challenges lie at every corner in terms of the global financial and monetary sectors which are affecting the economy and social issues of developing countries, together with the problems of climate change, epidemic diseases and airspace security issues.
Senior General Min Aung Hlaing also said that Myanmar’s military is making efforts for the government’s implementation of democratization processes and transition to a market-oriented economy, as well as the initiatives of peace and unity in the region.
The participants then discussed and exchanged views on expanded ties between the two
militaries.
Diplomatic relations between Myanmar and Laos began on 12 July 1955. Both sides have targeted completion of the Myanmar-Laos Friendship Bridge in March 2015. Myawady
