BANGKOK (AP) — The head of Myanmar’s military-controlled government, Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, has met with the visiting foreign minister of China, which has provided key support to his regime since it seized power two years ago. Myanmar state television says Qin Gang held talks in the capital with Min Aung Hlaing and exchanged views on bilateral relations, Myanmar’s political situation and conditions needed for its stability and development. Myanmar is mired in strife because of a political crisis unleashed when the military took power. China is one of the few large nations that has maintained good relations with Myanmar’s military government, which is shunned by many Western nations for its takeover and brutal suppression of its opponents.
