Premier Li Keqiang urged peace and stability in northern Myanmar when he met with Myanmar's President U Htin Kyaw in Beijing on Monday.

Peaceful and stable northern Myanmar is directly related to China's security in the southwest and China does not wish to see any break on the stability of border areas and the region, Li said.

Meanwhile, China supports Myanmar's endeavor to realize domestic peace and reconciliation, Li added. China is ready to continue to play a constructive role in Myanmar's peace process, he said.

The two countries are highly complementary in economic ties and share bright prospect for further cooperation, Li said. China is willing to align its strategies with the neighbor's, carry out key projects and strengthen exchanges under the frameworks of China-ASEAN and Lancang-Mekong mechanisms, he said.

Htin Kyaw, who is on a state visit, said Myanmar will make all efforts to keep border areas in peace and hopes China will continue its support for the neighbor's domestic peace process.

He said his country appreciates China's consistent commitment to promoting bilateral cooperation and friendship as well as long-time aid for humanitarian purposes. Myanmar is willing to boost cooperation with China in fields such as infrastructure and agriculture while advancing key projects, he added.
