Beijing: China pays great attention to the peace process  in Myanmar and is willing to play a constructive role in it for the security and stability of the border areas, President Xi Jinping said on Friday, amid the Rohingya refugee crisis in the neighbouring country.

Mr Xi’s remarks came as Myanmar’s military chief Sen-Gen Min Aung Hlaing called on him.

During their meeting, Mr Xi said that the recent congress of the ruling Communist Party of China has adopted a blueprint for China’s economic
and social reform and development for the years to come. “It will not only inject great vitality into China’s own development, but also bring new opportunities for various countries, including Myanmar, in their cooperation with China,” he said.

Hailing the “profound bilateral friendship”, Mr Xi called on the two countries to “strengthen strategic communication and accommodate each other’s concerns”.

Gen. Hlaing congratulated Mr Xi on his re-election as the general secretary of the CPC.
