Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will lead a delegation to the 13th foreign ministers' meeting of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar's capital, from November 20 to 21.

Wang will attend the meeting at the invitation of Myanmar's State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang on Thursday, adding that Wang will discuss the international and regional situation, connectivity cooperation in Asia and Europe and China's stance on hotspot issues.

Wang will have bilateral meetings with some heads of delegation to promote a new-type of Asia-Europe partnership and address challenges together, the spokesperson said.

Prior to the meeting, Wang will visit Bangladesh and Myanmar from Nov. 18 to 19, Geng said.

During his stay there, he will hold talks with his counterparts and meet leaders, Geng said.

The Asia-Europe Meeting was created in 1996 as a forum for dialogue and cooperation between Europe and Asia.
