Myanmar's Suu Kyi in China with dam project on agenda

Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi (L) meets with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on August 18, 2016Suu Kyi’s first major foreign trip since her administration took power in March showed “the Myanmar government and you yourself pay great attention to China-Myanmar ties”, Li Keqiang said at the start of talks in Beijing, adding: “China approves of this”. Myanmar sees its giant neighbour — and largest trading partner — as its biggest foreign policy preoccupation. Unfreezing the $3.6 billion Myitsone dam — stalled since 2011 — is a priority for China, while officials said Suu Kyi was seeking Beijing’s cooperation for peace talks with armed groups operating near the countries’ shared border.
