China rejects claims on involvement in Myanmar coup

TEHRAN, Feb. 03 (MNA) – China’s foreign ministry on Wednesday rejected the claims that it supported or gave tacit consent to Monday’s military coup in neighboring Myanmar.

“Relevant theories are not true. As Myanmar’s friendly neighboring country, we wish that all sides in Myanmar can appropriately resolve their differences, and uphold political and social stability,” foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said in response to a question at a daily briefing, Reuters reported.

The Chinese government’s top diplomat met last month during a scheduled visit to the Myanmar capital with officials including the country’s military chief, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, who this week seized power in the coup.

After the detention of Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior government officials on Monday, Myanmar's powerful military has taken control of the country in a coup and declared a state of emergency.
