MANILA -- Myanmar's president has brought additional typhoon aid on a three-day trip to the Philippines, where he is also expected to seek support for his country's hosting of a summit next year of Asian and world leaders.

President Thein Sein arrived Wednesday in Manila and is to meet Philippine President Benigno Aquino III on Thursday to bolster ties and witness the signing of trade, investment, agricultural and visa-exemption accords.

He will visit areas ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), which left at least 5,719 people dead and 1,779 others missing. Search teams continue to find bodies nearly a month after the powerful typhoon struck on November 8. The amount of new aid hasn't been announced.

Myanmar will host summits next year expected to be attended by President Barack Obama and other world leaders. (AP)
