BEIJING -- Wang Jiarui, a senior official of the Communist Party of China (CPC), met here on Wednesday with Aung San Suu Kyi, chair of Myanmar's National League for Democracy (NLD).
They exchanged views on relations between the two parties.
Wang is vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and head of the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.
It is Suu Kyi's first meeting with Chinese leaders in Beijing. She is on a five-day China trip from Wednesday to Sunday. She left Yangon for Beijing earlier Wednesday for her first visit to China at the invitation of the CPC.
China hopes this visit will strengthen communication and understanding between both sides and further their friendly cooperation in various fields, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei earlier.
