The two countries' leaders have reached important consensus on developing friendly relations and mutually beneficial cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative, said Yu, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
China will work with Myanmar to maintain sound high-level exchanges, strengthen strategic guidance to bilateral relations and push forward all-round cooperation, Yu said.
