Myanmar top brass visits NCPO

Myanmar's supreme commander General Min Aung Hlaing is making an official visit to Thailand today to strengthen bilateral ties.

He will meet his Thai counterpart General Tanasak Patimapragorn, who is also deputy director of the ruling National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), at the Royal Thai Armed Forces Command before visiting Privy Council President Prem Tinsulanonda at his Si Sao Theves residence.

He is also scheduled to meet NCPO chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha later in the day.

Myanmar is the second country to send senior military brass to Thailand after the May 22 power seizure.

The first country was Malaysia, which sent its defence minister and supreme commander to meet Prayuth last month.
