Myanmar Ambassador, Ko Ko Latt, told his guests on Tuesday that his country is actively participating in international affairs based on the principle of peaceful co-existence. Further, speaking at his country’s 67th Independence Day reception at the Diplomatic Quarters, Latt said that since the opening Myanmar Embassy in Riyadh in 2007, the embassy has been getting excellent assistance.

“I would like to express my deep appreciation to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah and the royal family, the government and the people of the Kingdom for excellent assistance since the opening of Myanmar Embassy in Riyadh in 2007,” he said.
