In her opening speech to the commemoration ceremony, Aung San Suu Kyi said Thailand is not only a friendly neighbor of Myanmar but also an important partner. Myanmar’s border with Thailand is 2416 KM long. Our two countries have been cooperating in all aspects beneficial to two peoples since the establishment of diplomatic ties in 1948. Our two countries cordially solved the problems based on mutual friendship, understanding and respect.
The bilateral relations of the two countries have become better now than those in the past. It looks really undeniable. Friendly and openly relations and cooperation further strengthened existing mutual understanding and trust, said Aung San Suu Kyi.
Thailand is providing job employments to millions of Myanmar migrant workers. For that reason, Myanmar migrant workers are helping develop Thailand’s economy. Our two countries are working in security, economy and other beneficial issues. Thanks to the understanding and assistance of the Thai government. We hope that bilateral relations between the two countries will become more wide-ranging, said Aung San Suu Kyi.
