State Department: Myanmar’s arms supplies could exacerbate the situation

41
Deliveries of Russian weapons may exacerbate the situation in Myanmar, where clashes between the authorities and Rohingya members continue, reports RIA News State Department spokesman Heather Nauert.




It became known earlier that Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu during a recent visit to Myanmar agreed to sell six Su-30 fighters.

Although most countries of the world are committed to a peaceful resolution of the crisis in Myanmar, some of them are ready to take steps that may lead to even greater suffering and instability. This could be an opportunity for Russia to show solidarity (with most countries) through humanitarian assistance, rather than potentially aggravating the situation by selling weapons,
said nawert.

According to her, the United States has long been "not providing assistance to the Myanmar military in operational training and not supplying weapons, technology or military materials."

We want the Myanmar military to take real steps and demonstrate commitment to human rights, national reconciliation and democracy,
added the representative of the State Department.

According to Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin, on Monday, Myanmar will buy Su-6 fighter jets from Russia and is also interested in marine and land equipment. According to him, "Su-30, which in practice proved the fighting qualities of a world-class aircraft," should become the main fighter of the Myanmar Air Force.

The agency recalls that Rohindzha (Rohingya) - "ethnic Bengalis Muslims resettled in the Burmese state of Arakan in the XIX - early XX century by the British colonial authorities." With a total of about one and a half million people, they constitute the majority of the population of Rakhine State, but not all of them have Myanmar citizenship. Officials and Buddhists consider Rohingya to be illegal migrants from Bangladesh. The escalation of the conflict began in 2011-2012 after the transfer of power in Myanmar from military to civilian government.

    The supply of arms to Myanmar will not only aggravate the situation in the American military-industrial complex, as I understand it. It’s not they who don’t deliver, it’s they who start sending them from there, together with their democracy.

        Yourself? How so? Without the USA? Victor, good morning! You can't even go to the toilet without the USA ...
        And the armed opposition. Perhaps the exceptional ones themselves support? Otherwise, where is such interest from? Or they wanted to put it by themselves ... Now they’ll definitely support!

        I don’t know. For all the duplicity of the Americans, the massacre in this country has been going on for decades. Is it worth it to supply weapons to such a country? I think this is not the best idea. Another thing is that the tool of this massacre is usually a machete or chopper and not a SU-30.

    The competition in the arms market is fierce ... Americans don’t like it when someone takes up the arms market without their knowledge ... the bestial grin of capitalism, so to speak ... here's another irresistible contradiction between the capitalist countries that inevitably leads to a clash between them.

    Marx and Lenin are right ... although they have long been gone, their conclusions about the essence of capital are still valid.

      Yes noooo. What are you, right? It’s just that our weapons are not democratic, and therefore will not be able to bring democracy with them. Not like their weapons! Here it always and everywhere bears exclusively exclusive democracy!

    The supply of Russian weapons to Myanmar undermines the "democratization" processes - they prevent the striped ones from turning this country into another theater of a bloody show with the participation of Islamists.

      There are no such conditions in the export of arms - 100% prepayment, an advance is paid from 30% and above the rest in stages, as far as I read the foreign exchange contract (in euros)

    Russian arms supplies could worsen situation in Myanmar
    And the supply of the American, as I understand it, will defuse the situation? They are trying to impose their weapons (not offer) to the whole world and consider this to be natural. And here Russia can snatch a small piece from the United States. Not an order.

    statement by the representative of the State Department: Supplies of Russian weapons may aggravate the situation in Myanmar, where clashes between authorities and representatives of the Rohingya people continue

    Because it’s not the FSA that transfers weapons to the government. But if Myanmar asked for a weapon from the Yankens, then everything would be in “openwork”. yes fool

    What a madhouse is going on, everything is everywhere, everything is shared. The catalyst is known. Making friends in Myanmar is a good move for both sides. And to the state, which has a coastline of 1930 km and many islands, God himself ordered the development of the Navy, that’s why they are interested.

    "... Russian arms deliveries could aggravate the situation in Myanmar, where clashes between the authorities and the Rohingya people continue, RIA Novosti reports from a representative of the State Department, Heather Nauert ..."
    yeah, Russikh is not a “democratic" weapon. is Ukraine supplying "democratic" and to Syria, the flow of supplies is also democratic?
    "... We want the Myanmar military to take real steps and demonstrate commitment to human rights, national reconciliation and democracy ..."

    There is no Rohingya — there are Bengal illegal Muslim migrants, just as there are no Palestinians — there are Arabs, the same migrants. Let them go home, to Bengal and the Arabian Peninsula, respectively, if someone does not like something.

    My concern is not the supply of arms to Myanmar, but the fact that this is being done again at the expense of the Russian Federation and to the detriment of it ... Myanmar does not pay a hundred pounds, then again on credit, which will then be written off, consider it a gift ... Su-30 itself Russia, and if Myanmar is dear to Putin, let him put forward himself as president ...
