Myanmar’s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will begin her first visit to China on Wednesday amid tension between the two nations.
According to the BBC, Suu Kyi will meet President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang, but no other details have been provided about her visit.
Ties between the two countries have soured in recent years as Myanmar has been fighting rebels in its eastern Kokang region, which borders China’s Yunnan province.
At least five people in Yunan were killed in a bomb attack carried out by Burma on a sugar field in March, prompting China to send patrols to the border in response.
Beijing has often expressed concern about the violence spilling across the border.
