YANGON, June 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao left Yangon for Beijing on Thursday after concluding a two-day visit to Myanmar, the last leg of his four-nation Asian tour.

Wen arrived in Yangon from Ulan Bator, Mongolia on Wednesday for his first visit to Myanmar. It was also the first visit to Myanmar in 16 years by a Chinese premier.

Wen flew to Naypyitaw on Thursday for talks with Myanmar Prime Minister U Thein Sein and a meeting with Senior General Than Shwe, chairman of the State Peace and Development Council.

Wen and Thein Sein witnessed a signing ceremony of 15 cooperation documents covering areas such as a natural gas pipeline, hydropowver station and grant aid.

The leaders also attended celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two neighboring countries.

Wen's seven-day Asian tour also took him to South Korea, Japan and Mongolia.
