China warships dock in Myanmar

Posted by chinaview on August 30, 2010

AFP, Aug. 30, 2010 -

YANGON — Two Chinese warships have made a rare visit to military-ruled Myanmar to spend several days promoting ties between the allied countries’ armed forces, Chinese state media said Monday.

The ships from the People’s Liberation Army Navy docked at Yangon’s Thilawa port on Sunday afternoon and will launch a series of exchanges with Myanmar’s navy, Xinhua news agency reported.

“The five-day mission is aimed at promoting friendly relationships between the two armed forces of the two countries and exchange between the two navies,” the report said.

A Chinese defence ministry official confirmed the ships’ arrival to AFP.

The warships, which Xinhua said were welcomed with a “grand ceremony”, have arrived as Myanmar prepares for its first election in twenty years on November 7, which has been widely criticised by activists and the West as a sham.

While numerous Western nations direct sanctions at Myanmar, which has been military ruled since 1962, China is the junta’s key ally, trading partner and an eager investor in the isolated state’s sizeable natural resources.

In November China’s top oil producer began construction of a pipeline across Myanmar.

The Asian economic powerhouse has long helped keep Myanmar afloat through trade ties, arms sales, and by shielding it from UN sanctions over rights abuses as a veto-wielding, permanent member of the Security Council…….(AFP)
