It’s natural that the Japanese government maintains a relationship with Myanmar in a manner different from the western governments, State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi in her capacity as the foreign minister said in response to a question raised by a Japanese journalist at the press briefing held after a meeting with her Japanese counterpart yesterday.
She added that if one believes in democracy, one shall accept diversities based upon which Japan and Myanmar have been working together in finding solutions to bilateral, regional and international issues.
The meeting between the two foreign ministers was focused on matters relating to urban development of the City of Yangon, the upgrading of railway transport, ensuring that the full rights of Myanmar workers in Japan are respected, participation in Myanmar’s peace process and the providing of scholarship awards.
In the press briefing the Japanese foreign minister said that Japan heartily welcomed the successful implementation of the transfer of power to the historic government that has won the people’s mandate, and that both the Japanese government and Japanese private enterprises will provide assistance to Myanmar’s development effort.
He further emphasised that Japan has been helping Myanmar with internal peace process and national reconciliation efforts and that the Japanese government will continue to provide the new Myanmar government with assistance through the special representative of the Japanese government.—Myanmar News Agency
