Beijing: Myanmar`s opposition leader and democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi will visit China next week, Beijing said Friday, amid cooling relations between the two countries.
The Nobel Prize Laureate will be in China for four days from June 10 with members of her National League for Democracy (NLD) party, China`s ruling Communist Party said on an official website.
It was not clear from the statement which Chinese officials Suu Kyi would meet.
Beijing was a key backer of Myanmar`s military junta while it was under Western sanctions, but President Thein Sein has increased ties with the United States since launching political reforms in 2011.
In recent months relations between China and Myanmar have been strained as effects from an ethnic insurgency raging in the southeast Asian country spilled over its border with the Asian giant.
