Myanmar President Htin Kyaw has sent a letter of congratulation to US President elect Donald Trump on his recent victory in the US elections.
In a statement released on the President’s Office Facebook page, Htin Kyaw offered his heartiest congratulations on Mr Trump’s election as 45th President of the United States of America.
The Myanmar President said he hoped the existing cordial relations and cooperation will be further consolidated and strengthened through the countries’ joint efforts.
