YANGON, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar has established diplomatic ties with Luxembourg, the third country that Myanmar forged links so far in 2012 after Malawi and Bhutan, according to official sources Thursday.

The diplomatic establishment with Luxembourg has brought the total number of countries in the world with which Myanmar has such links to 107 since it regained independence in 1948.

According to the Foreign Ministry, Myanmar has so far set up embassies in 30 countries and two permanent missions in New York and Geneva, and four consulates-general in China's Hong Kong, Kunming and Nanning, and India's Calcutta, respectively.

Meanwhile, 28 countries have their embassies in Myanmar. In addition, China and India have respectively set up consulates- general in Myanmar's Mandalay, the second largest city, while Switzerland in Yangon and Bangladesh in Sittway.
