22 January 2023

Your Excellency,

On the occasion of the Lunar New Year 2023, firstly, we would like to wish the people of China and People’s Republic of China with peace and prosperity.

The past year of 2022 has been a flourishing period of success for the people of China, Communist Party of China and People’s Republic of China. China has illustrated its importance not only in successfully convening the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of China but also in regional affairs. The people of Myanmar and National Unity Government of Republic of Myanmar are very proud of such various achievements.

We would reiterate our warm welcome to the third term of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Mr. Qin Gang’s appointment as Foreign Minister.

Moreover, we, National Unity Government, would like to express our deep gratitude to the People’s Republic of China for their support for the return of power to the people by Myanmar and people of Myanmar.

We are exceptionally grateful for China’s support and standing for the people of Myanmar in the international arena especially in the United Nations and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). By showing that the People’s Republic of China does not stand with the military junta that is violently oppressing our people of Myanmar, it is a proof of the good neighborliness of the People’s Republic of China to the people of Myanmar and the people of Myanmar will always remember the People’s Republic of China’s stand.

In addition, we can confidently assure that the fruits of the revolution that the people of Myanmar and the National Unity Government are currently contesting will not harm the interests and the long-term stable development of the regional countries, including the interests of the People’s Republic of China.

The new Federal Nation envisioned by our National Unity Government and the people of Myanmar will only bring fruitful impacts to the neighboring countries and the People’s Republic of China.In conclusion, we believe that our two countries with the tradition of great friendship for many years, will be able to have closer relations in the coming year of the Rabbit). We convey our earnest wishes that the new year will promote and strengthen genuine Pauk Phaw relations for the people of both China and Myanmar.
