On Monday U Kyaw Lin said to Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (Parliament) that Thailand has taken over the costs of building the bridge.
The bridge will also be used to build checkpoints on the Thai/Myanmar borders, he said. The bridge was constructed within the framework of the international traffic agreement between the six member states of the Greater Mekong subregion, which Myanmar concluded in 1992, to facilitate passenger, freight and vehicular traffic:
Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and China. "Within the framework of the treaty, if member states allow crossings in both directions, the streets in our state must comply with global standards," said U Kyaw Lin, Assistant Secretary of State. Five counties in the Greater Mekong subregion have carried out cross-border freight transports, but Myanmar has not.
Myanmar and Thailand met the Vietnamese authorities on 16 March in Greater Mekong Sub-Region to agree to let 50 cars per night travel across Friendship Bridge 2 from each of them. "This treaty allows Myanmar residents and goods to travel from Myanmar to Thailand and Thailand residents and goods to Myanmar," said U Kyaw Lin.
The Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge 2 will enable humans, cars and goods to access the frontier city of Myawady and further journey to Pha-an, Yangon and Pathein. The Myanmar citizen can also move through Thailand to the Greater Mekong subregion, according to Deputy Minister U Kyaw Lin.
