Burma and China have reportedly signed a memorandum of understanding on the establishment of border defense talks and management of border affairs.
China's official Xinhua news agency said the agreement was signed today (Sunday) by General Ge Zhenfeng, deputy chief of general staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, and by General Thura Shwe Mann, chief of the general staff of Burma.
Xinhua said the agreement will help strengthen the exchange and cooperation between the two countries over border defense and stability in border areas.
The deal will also enhance the fight against crimes such as smuggling and drug trafficking in border areas.
General Ge and his delegation arrived in Rangoon on Wednesday and were scheduled to return home later on Sunday.
