Officials from the United States said the country met with China on Friday at 1:40 p.m. to discuss the ongoing crisis in Burma and how to handle the violence occurring in the country as a joint partnership.
Three of the main things that the U.S. is concerned with is the refugees, continued loss of life and overall security in Burma.
U.S. Ambassador Eliza Siordia said the country wants to help provide freedom for Burmese citizens in cooperation with China and see a stable government develop in the country.
“We’re the leaders of the free world, and we just want to see democracy bloom everywhere,” Siordia said. “We’re not trying to be imperialistic. We’re just trying to unite and globalize society. Every country is connected.”
