This arrival was greeted by Myanmar President Mr. Htin Kyaw and his wife. After the initial welcome Mr. Lee went on to inspect the Guard of Honour at the Myanmar Presidential Palace located in Napyitaw. To respect his presence National flags of both the countries were hoisted in the Presidential Palace lawn while an official band played the national anthems of both the countries. Mr. Lee also met up with the Myanmar’s State Counsellor and Foreign Affairs Minister Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi.
