- "The Chinese military wants to work more closely with the armed forces of Myanmar. That said a top Chinese officer during a visit to the Southeast Asian country, state media reported Saturday."

"China is engaged in a charm offensive towards the resource-rich neighbor in April after elections in power since Nobel Laureate Aung Sang Suu Kyi arrived. Beijing always maintained good ties with the dictatorial regime that ruled Myanmar for decades, and follows the ongoing democratization process closely."

"Suu Kyi in August began with an attempt to put an end to decades of conflict between the army and the many rebel groups in the country. That same month she visited China, where President Xi Jinping told her that he wanted to ensure the \"correct direction\" of relations. \"China is committed to a friendly policy toward China and support the national reconciliation process,\" said the Chinese officer.\n  \n    \n     \n      \n        2:12\n      \n     Lessons paid in kind\n     \n     \n      \n        2:23\n      \n     \"Turn it off your sunglasses'\n     \n     \n      \n        2:26\n      \n     Vloggers intimidate councilor"
