CHINESE-MADE MILITARY TRUCKS DESTINED FOR BURMA ARRIVED AGAIN AT THE BORDER 2008 January 16
Chinese-made FAW brand six-wheeler light trucks for military use has arrived again in Ruili and Jehong on Sino-Burmese border destined to be handed over to Burma. The trucks arrived in Ruili since yesterday evening and are now undergoing cleansing at car washes around Ruili. There are about 100 vehicles, it is learnt. Also in last December, a total of similar 450 FAW brand six-wheeler military light trucks were delivered to Burma Army authorities on the border at Jehong-Muse. Since 2001, military vehicles with FAW, Dong Feng, LJC and LIFAN brands along with accessory military equipment were handed over to Burmese military authorities through the border checkpoints. These goods were delivered to Burmese military junta as gifts, sale on credit or barter with teak, jade and agricultural produce. Military analysts supposed that Burma Army is chiefly relying on Chinese made military equipment.
