U.S. not concerned about Myanmar's good ties with China: Clinton

12-03-2011 17:08 BJT

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday that her country is not concerned about Myanmar's maintenance of good relations with China.

"We have no concerns about Burma (Myanmar) having good relations with China," the top U.S. diplomat told the NBC TV network before concluding her two-day visit to the Southeast Asian nation.

"They share a long border. It's a big neighbor that you have to figure out how to get along with," she said of Myanmar-China ties. "That is not anything that we have an interest in or an objection to."

She said her trip to Myanmar "is not about anything other than the potential for American engagement to support the reformers inside of the country."

She reiterated that as a Pacific power, the United States is refocusing its attention on the Asia-Pacific region after preoccupying itself with Iraq and Afghanistan over the last 10 years.
