YANGON, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar State Counselor and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi will visit Japan in the near future, an official statement said Saturday without specifying the date.

Other sources said Suu Kyi will pay the five-day visit to the East Asian country on Nov. 1-5, aimed at enhancing the existing relations between the two countries.

It will be Suu Kyi's first Japan trip after the new government took office in April.

During her stay in Japan, Suu Kyi is expected to have talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and meet Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko.

Suu Kyi, in her capacity as chairwoman of the National League for Democracy (NLD), visited Japan in 2013.

In May, Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida came to Myanmar and had discussions with Suu Kyi on bilateral cooperation in implementing democracy and economic development in the country.

The two countries also vowed to continue cooperation as development partners.
