缅甸军人统治者访问中国 Burma Military Ruler Visits China

07 September, 2010

缅甸最高领导人丹瑞大将星期二抵达北京进行国事访问。缅甸今年秋季将举行全国选举。
 
中国大力支持缅甸,并为缅甸提供重要的经济和外交支援。由于缅甸军政府人权记录不佳以及在20年前拒绝把权力交给赢得选举的反对党,缅甸当局在很大程度上受到西方的冷遇。
 
预计丹瑞在5天访问期间将同中国国家主席胡锦涛、国务院总理温家宝以及其他高级官员会晤。
 
虽然没有公布丹瑞此次访问日程的细节,但专家预计双方的会谈将集中在缅甸即将举行的选举以及温家宝今年早些时候签署的中缅经济协议。

Burma's top leader, General Than Shwe, arrived in Beijing Tuesday for a state visit ahead of national elections this fall.
 
China strongly backs Burma and provides it with key economic and diplomatic support. Burma's ruling military has been largely shunned by the West because of its poor human rights record and failure to hand over power to the opposition party that won elections 20 years ago.
 
Than Shwe is expected to meet with President Hu Jintao, Premier Wen Jiabao and other senior Chinese officials during his five-day visit.
 
Though no details have been released about their agenda, experts expect talks to center on Burma's upcoming elections and economic deals signed by Mr. Wen earlier this year.
