The Bangkok Post-Oct 2
At their 9th annual joint bilateral meeting in Nay Pyi Taw in August, both countries proclaimed from now on they are “natural strategic partners”. It was the right time, coming on the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations being established. The new status is unique as it highlights and recognises the strategic value of their shared traditions, culture, religion and way of life.
