Chi­na res­ponds to Ja­pa­ne­se eco­no­mic as­sis­tan­ce to My­an­mar

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

CHI­NA - Chi­na on thurs­day res­pon­ded to a ques­ti­on about Ja­pan’s eco­no­mic aid to My­an­mar by calling for sin­ce­re help for the Sou­t­he­ast Asi­an coun­try from the in­ter­na­ti­o­nal com­mu­ni­ty.

Ja­pa­ne­se Pri­me Mi­nis­ter Shin­zo Abe said on Wed­nes­day that Ja­pan will pro­vi­de 800 bil­li­on yen (7.73 bil­li­on U.S. dol­lars) for My­an­mar over the next fi­ve ye­ars to as­sist the coun­try’s pea­ce pro­cess and na­ti­o­nal de­vel­op­ment. Ac­cor­ding to Ja­pa­ne­se me­dia re­ports, this as­sis­tan­ce al­so re­flects Ja­pan’s ri­val­ry with Chi­na for eco­no­mic and po­li­ti­cal in­flu­en­ce in Sou­t­he­ast Asia.

“Chi­na has ne­ver tar­ge­ted a third par­ty whi­le de­vel­o­ping di­plo­ma­tic re­la­ti­ons with coun­tries around the world,” said Fo­reign Mi­ni­stry spo­kesper­son Hua Chun­ying at a rou­ti­ne press brie­fing. “We ho­pe re­le­vant coun­tries could al­so adopt such an open, in­clu­si­ve and frank at­ti­tu­de in de­vel­o­ping ties with other coun­tries,” Hua said. As a friend­ly neigh­bor to My­an­mar, Chi­na sup­ports the coun­try in car­rying out ex­chan­ges and coop­e­ra­ti­on with all coun­tries, she said, calling for the in­ter­na­ti­o­nal com­mu­ni­ty to pro­vi­de mo­re prac­ti­cal and sin­ce­re help for My­an­mar’s de­vel­op­ment and sta­bi­li­ty.
