KUALA LUMPUR (Sputnik) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Myanmar President Thein Sein pledged on Sunday to boost bilateral ties, on the margins of the ASEAN Summit in Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur.
"Russia is willing to continue deepening friendly relations with your country <…> across all spheres," Medvedev said.
He hinted at the coming political changes in the Southeast Asian country following the November 8 general election, which saw the party of Myanmar’s long-time opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi win by a landslide.
The new government will take over next March. Until then, the incumbent president hopes to visit Russia in his current capacity.
