Thailand's military-appointed prime minister is scheduled to make his first visit to neighboring Burma Thursday.
Thai Foreign Minister Nitya Pibulsonggram says discussions between the two nations will include economic relations and border security.
But Nitya also said Thailand is seeking a more transparent relationship with Burma's military government and not the so-called cozy commercial relationship that existed between Burma and former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
Thailand's military ousted Thaksin in a bloodless coup in September, accusing the billionaire businessman of being corrupt and divisive.
Thaksin had also been criticized for his close economic and business dealings with Burma's military leaders while ignoring their poor record on human rights.
