Myanmar Opposes Fence Posts On Chinese Border


China’s construction of fences near border posts between Myanmar and China, are opposed by Myanmar.
 Thein Min Tun, director of the Boundary Division under the Consular and Legal Affairs Department, told Mizzima eight fence posts on the Chinese side do not comply with the two countries’ border agreement, 
“We oppose any breach of contract. Eight posts have already been objected to.” he said.
On November 22 last year, they had protested against Chinese construction of fences, crossing the border, near border post BP-125 in Laukkai Township in the Kokang Self-Administered Zone (SAZ), said Ngwe Do, Laukkai Township Administrator.
To prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus and illegal crossings, the Chinese side has erected fences around the border with Myanmar, with temporary barbed wire fences as well as reinforced structures, officials said. 
The Boundary Agreement was signed on January 28, 1960.
