DW News published this video item, entitled “China is calling on Myanmar’s junta to negotiate with its opponents | DW News” – below is their description.
Myanmar’s military government has hosted its first international meeting since it seized power in last year’s coup. The gathering of what’s called the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation Group included China’s foreign minister Wang Yi. Myanmar’s state broadcaster reported that Wang met with his colleagues from Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. The grouping is a Chinese-led initiative with nations bordering the Mekong River. Potential regional tensions are involved here, because of the many hydroelectric projects that are changing the river’s flow and possibly damaging its ecology. The meeting was condemned by Myanmar’s shadow National Unity Government, which opposes the military.DW News YouTube Channel
