Myanmar's military chief has pledged to work with the country's new government, following landmark elections on Sunday.

Min Aung Hlaing said the military would "do what is best in co-operation with the new government during the post-election period".

Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy is on track for a majority, taking about 80% of declared seats.

But a quarter of parliamentary seats are allocated to the military, meaning it will remain hugely influential.

Last weekend's vote was Myanmar's first openly contested general election for 25 years.
