China and Myanmar have agreed to maintain peace and security in their border area, according to a Xinhua report.

The agreement was made by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and U Kyaw Tint Swe, Myanmar's minister of the office of the State Counsellor, during a meeting in Beijing on Thursday.

Saying China and Myanmar's comprehensive strategic cooperation has become increasingly deep, Wang called on the two sides to maintain high-level communication, deepen cooperation, and press ahead with the construction of the China-Myanmar economic corridor.

As a supporter of Myanmar's domestic peace process, China will continue to push forward peace talks, the Chinese foreign minister was quoted as saying.
