China sends troops to border with conflict-torn Myanmar: media [Copy link] 中文

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has sent soldiers to its border with Myanmar amid concern that escalating violence between the Southeast Asian country's government and ethnic separatists is spilling over, an official Chinese newspaper reported on Friday.

The Global Times said that troops were sent to the border between China's Yunnan Province and Myanmar's northern Kachin State "to understand the situation". It did not give any details on the number or type of soldiers.

"On the night of the 9th, there was shelling in Kachin, and residents of the unstable area quickly ran inside the Chinese border to pass the night in peace," the report said. Yunnan is home to an ethnic Kachin population.

The Communist Party's official newspaper, the People's Daily, carried an article on its website from the Changjiang Daily newspaper describing artillery shells exploding on a mountain in Yingjiang County, which borders Myanmar.

Officials in the Dehong prefecture government, in which the county is located, declined to comment on Friday.

The intensification of the conflict has cast doubt on the intentions of Myanmar's government, which is led by former generals who have been praised for reforms in other areas including elections, media and civil society.

Kachin rebel sources have reported aerial bombings, shelling and even the use of chemical weapons since December 28. Myanmar's government said there were no airstrikes, but that K-8 trainer jets had provided cover fire to protect ground troops from rebel attacks.

The 18-month conflict in Kachin state is one of the biggest tests for Myanmar's new civilian government's reform effort and the use of aircraft has raised doubts about whether the retired generals in the government have really changed their harsh old ways.

While China has strong business and trade ties with Myanmar, it has long looked with wariness at its poor and unstable southern neighbor and has repeatedly called on the country to ensure stability along the vast and remote border.

Well...  I think our once upon a time ally and comrad in arm Rangoon have fallen prey to recent Hindu-American carrot sticking and stirring up the Kachins unrest along our Yunan border to destablize China as part of America's China containment strategy. The caving in to of activist Aung San Suu Kyi is clearly the turning point of sino-Myanmar relations. Chinese medias have been issuing reports of Myanmar KJ-8's and Q-5's as having strayed into or intentionally violated Chinese airspaces in pursue of the Kachin nationalists and shells have also landed in China, a situation reminiscent to what was going on in the sino-Vietnamese border before the sino-Vietnam conflict erupted. My thoughts with respect this sino-Myanmar situation is that a nation State of Kachin who is pro-Asian is not a bad thing for China. Thus, as a political move, this Myanmar conflict can serve, as our breakout strategy to start and solidify our own sphere of layal influences. We now have the means and the economic power to make that work. I mean isn't that how the West did it?  
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

It may be regulate the flow of refugees or to stop the fleeing kanchin rebels moving into China. But I do understand that China did support Kanchin rebels at some times in history.
