MOSCOW, April 26. /TASS/. Bilateral cooperation between Russia and Myanmar is developing dynamically, especially in the naval field, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Tuesday at a meeting with Myanmar’s Defense Minister Sein Win.
"During nearly 70 years of relations Russia and Myanmar have established strong friendly ties. The political contacts have become more active in recent years. The bilateral cooperation is developing dynamically, especially in the naval field and culture," Shoigu said.
He pointed to another important area of cooperation - the training of military personnel from Myanmar in Russia.
"I am confident that today’s meeting will contribute to further strengthening our bilateral contacts and cooperation in the military and military-technical areas," Shoigu added.
