Chinese premier back home from Myanmar

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang returned to Beijing on Friday evening after his visit to Myanmar.

Li attended a series of leaders' meetings on East Asia cooperation from Wednesday to Friday in Myanmar, and paid an official visit to the country at the invitation of Myanmar's President U Thein Sein.

Li's trip, his first as premier to the Southeast Asian nation, came on the heels of U Thein Sein's visit last week to Beijing, where he attended a partners' dialogue on strengthening regional connectivity and met with both Chinese President Xi Jinping and Li.

Myanmar holds the rotating chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) this year, and is hosting a series of regional meetings in the capital city of Nay Pyi Taw.

Li attended the 17th China-ASEAN leaders' meeting, the 17th ASEAN-China, Japan and South Korea leaders' meeting, and the 9th East Asia Summit.

During his visit, Li also met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Nay Pyi Taw. He invited Modi to visit China early next year.
