Myanmar Culture Minister Khin Aung Myint has proposed that Vietnam and Myanmar exchange theatre groups and promote archaeological co-operation.

The visit minister made the proposal at a meeting with the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoang Tuan Anh in Hanoi on April 15.

Minister Myint said that his country also has caves like the ones in Ha Long Bay where many of the country’s important relics were unearthed.

Myanmar hopes to assist Vietnam in archaeology and explore its national historical culture, said the minister, adding that he hoped Vietnam will set up a team of archaeologists to work with Myanmar’s experts.
