YANGON, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- China provided financial assistance of 300,000 U.S. dollars for ceasefire monitoring work being carried out by Myanmar authorities on Friday morning.

The cash assistance was presented by the Special Envoy for Asian Affairs of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Sun Guoxiang to Lt. General Yar Pyae, chairman of the Union-Level Joint Ceasefire Monitoring Committee (JMC-U) at the National Reconciliation and Peace Center (NRPC) in Yangon.
