Junta chief to meet Thai royalty

Junta chief to meet Thai royalty
Mar 15, 2010

YANGON - MYANMAR'S reclusive junta chief was due to meet a princess from neighbouring Thailand on Monday, on the first visit by a Thai royal to the remote capital of the military-ruled nation, an official said.

Senior General Than Shwe was set to meet Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn in the afternoon after she arrived in the capital Naypyidaw on a special flight from Bangkok, the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

During her three-day goodwill trip, Princess Sirindhorn, who is adored by the Thai public, was also due to visit the southern delta region to see development works in the area worst-hit Cyclone Nargis in May 2008. The cyclone killed up to 138,000 people and devastated infrastructure in the rural river belt.

The last visit of the princess to Myanmar was in 2003.

Myanmar's ruling generals moved their entire government from the economic hub Yangon to Naypyidaw in late 2005, after building the new administrative capital in secret over the previous three years.

Engagement or Isolation, does this count as an official visit then ?

KO HTWE
Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Burma's military chief Snr-Gen Than Shwe met with Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, daughter of the Thai king, on Monday in Naypyidaw, the capital of Burma.

The princess paid homage at Upapatasanti Pagoda, which was built by the Burmese regime, visited National Landmarks Garden, observed the construction of the Pyithu Hluttaw [Parliament] Building and the Burma Gems Museum, according to the state-run newspaper.

This is her fourth visit to Burma, but the first time she visited Naypyidaw, which the ruling generals created as the country's new capital in 2005.

During her first visit in March 1986, she was a guest of Gen Ne Win, the chairman of the Burma Socialist Programme Party.

During her second trip in March 1994, she entered Burma by crossing the Thai-Burmese border at Chiang Rai, Thailand, to visit Kengtung in eastern Shan State, about 165 km from the border, to study art and culture.

During her third visit in March 2003, she visited Bago; Mandalay; Muse, a border town with China; Putao in Kachin State and Mrauk U in Rakhine State.

Princess Sirindhorn was born on April 2, 1955, and is the third child of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit.
