Growing Indo-Myanmar ties worry China

By The Assam Tribune

BEIJING, Jan 6 � Myanmar�s growing rapport with Japan, Western nations and India could influence Sino-Myanmar relations and put pressure on China�s �strategic space� in the southeast Asian nation, Chinese state media said today, reports PTI.

�The growing rapport between Myanmar and the West could influence Sino-Myanmar relations and put pressure on China�s strategic space�, a write-up in the official daily Global Times said.

It noted that Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso pledged debt relief of USD 5.74 billion and a fresh loan of 50 billion yen during his ongoing Myanmar visit, an attempt interpreted as targeting China, the article said.

�In addition, the Indian Defence Minister A K Antony will head for Naypyitaw later this month to �boost bilateral military cooperation and counter China�s deep strategic inroads there,� the article said.

�Myanmar is certainly undergoing changes. Some analysts hold that China�s backyard is on fire and an anti-China front is gradually being shaped in Myanmar. This exaggerates the impact of these changes and underestimates the strength of the Sino-Myanmar relationship�, it said.
