Why Myanmar is Seeing Worst Fighting in Two Years & Is It a Concern for India

Posted By: Jaydatt Chaudhary Posted On: Nov 19, 2023

More Myanmar nationals and civilians are crossing the border to escape the recent surge of violence between the military government and anti-junta groups in the country in the last few weeks.

At least 29 Myanmar soldiers entered Mizoram this week fleeing an attack by insurgents on their military base close to the Indian border, amid an ongoing fight between the rebels and the ruling junta government.

So far, around 1,500 Myanmar nationals have fled the country and took refuge in Mizoram as of November 13 following an intense gunfight between the Myanmar Army and pro-democracy militias.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has expressed deep concerns over the incidents of violence and called cessation of fighting that has triggered an influx of Myanmar's refugees to Mizoram.

Myanmar has been in turmoil since the 2021 coup, when the military ousted a government led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, ending a decade of tentative democratic reform. Since, the ousting of the Aung San Suu Kyi government, there has been violence between pro-democracy forces and the junta government.

The fighting surged in October as the violence is going on in multiple fronts. The Arakan Army, one of the ethnic militant groups, launched attacks in the western state of Rakhine putting the military government under pressure.

The Arakan Army, along with the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army and the Ta'ang National Liberation Army — calling themselves the Three Brotherhood Alliance — launched a coordinated offensive on October 27 in northern Shan state in northeastern Myanmar along the border with China.

Meanwhile, the fighting has also been reported between the rebels and the military in Minbya, Maungdaw, Mrauk-U and Kyauktaw townships.

The Myanmar's military has resorted to airstrikes in the western region that killed at least 11 civilians.

What Has India Said?

India has called for cessation of fighting between Myanmar's military and anti-junta groups near the international border. MEA Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi expressed deep concerns over the incidents of violence close to the Indo-Myanmar border.

“As a result of the fighting, in the Rihkhawdar area in Chin State, opposite Zowkhathar in Mizoram on the India-Myanmar border, there has been movement of Myanmar nationals to the Indian side,” he said.

“We reiterate our call for return of peace, stability and democracy in Myanmar. Since the current conflict started in 2021 in Myanmar, a large number of Myanmar citizens have been taking refuge in India,” Bagchi added.

Myanmar, one of India's strategic neighbours, shares a 1,640-kilometre border with a number of northeastern states, including militancy-hit Nagaland and Manipur.

More than 31,000 Myanmar nationals have taken shelter in Mizoram since February 2021 after the Myanmar military junta staged a coup in the neighbouring country.

According to a UN High Commissioner for Human Rights statement, the recent spillover of the civil war since October 27, has led to the deaths of 70 civilians and injured 90, while more than 200,000 have been displaced.

China Navy Ships Arrive in Myanmar for Joint Drills Amid Ongoing Border Conflict Published 4 minutes ago

Posted By: Vanshika Pathak Posted On: Nov 28, 2023

Three Chinese navy ships have arrived in Myanmar for joint drills with its navy, the country's junta said, as a border conflict strains ties between the Southeast Asian nation and its most important ally.

A destroyer, frigate and a supply vessel carrying hundreds of sailors arrived at Thilawa port on Monday ahead of “naval security exercises between Myanmar and China”, the junta's information team said. It did not give details about the drills or when they would begin but state media reported the Chinese “naval task force” was 700 sailors strong.

Beijing is a major ally and arms supplier of Myanmar's junta and has refused to label its 2021 power grab a coup. Relations have been tested recently as the junta battles an alliance of ethnic minority groups across a swathe of territory near the China border. The junta has said the groups are using drones made in China in their offensive that has seized trade hubs and dozens of military outposts in northern Shan state.

Earlier this month protesters gathered at a rare demonstration in Yangon to accuse China of backing the armed groups, in what analysts say was a move sanctioned by junta authorities. Beijing has expressed “strong dissatisfaction” over the clashes in northern Shan state, home to oil and gas pipelines that supply China and a planned billion-dollar railway link.

China has said the fighting has caused Chinese “casualties” on its side of the border, without giving details. Beijing has also been frustrated by the junta's failure to crack down on online scam compounds in Myanmar's lawless borderlands that target Chinese citizens.

On Saturday, China kicked off military exercises near the Myanmar border, days after an attack on a compound in the Myanmar border hub of Muse destroyed more than one hundred vehicles. The offensive launched last month by an alliance of three ethnic minority armed groups has galvanised other opponents of the junta. Clashes have spread to the east and the west of the country and forced nearly 335,000 people to flee their homes, according to the United Nations.

India vs Australia 3rd T20 match prediction

Suryakumar Yadav's India take on Matthew Wade's Australia in the third T20 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Assam on Tuesday. The Men in Blue have thrashed the Aussies in the last two matches and will be looking to seal the tournament with a win in the third T20 of the five-match series.

Also Read | India vs Australia 3rd T20 match: When, where and how to watch, live-streaming details

Surya-led India have looked energetic on the field and somewhat ultra-aggressive with the bat, following in their captain's footsteps. In their last encounter, the Indian side had handed Australia a comfortable 44-run defeat, buoyed by half-centuries from India's top three batsmen and later by the onslaught of left-hander Rinku Singh.

Another left-hander in the side, Tilak Varma, will be under the scanner in the 3rd T20 match as there may be changes in the Indian XI with Shreyas Iyer taking over the vice-captaincy from Ruturaj Gaikwad from the next match. Varma, who was out cheaply to Tanvir Sangha in the first game and barely got any time at the crease in the second, will be looking to make an impact in the third T20I to seal his place in the Indian XI.

India vs Australia 3rd T20: Fantasy XI

Ishan Kishan, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Josh Inglis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Jason Behrendorff, Ravi Bishnoi

India vs Australia 3rd T20: Match prediction

As per Google's win probability, there is a 55% chance that India will win today.

Meanwhile, according to CricTracker, no matter who bats first, India will emerge victorious. MyKhel also says that India are likely to win and take an unassailable lead in the series. We believe the Men in Blue, who have looked the superior side in the series so far, will come out on top once again against a tired Aussie line-up.

Champions Trophy to be shifted out of Pakistan or held in hybrid model

Posted By: Ramesh Sharma Posted On: Nov 27, 2023
Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Zaka Ashraf (AP Photo/B.K. Bangash, File) (AP)

The 2025 edition of Champions Trophy, the second biggest multilateral One-Day International (ODI) cricket tournament after the World Cup, would be shifted out of Pakistan or played under hybrid model, reports said on November 27.

The tournament could be moved to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), or played under an Asia Cup-like hybrid model with matches scheduled in both the countries, the media reports claimed.

Livemint could not independently verify the development.

Pakistan is currently scheduled to host the Champions Trophy 2025, but speculations are rife that the International Cricket Council (ICC) may come out with an alternative plan as India may decide against sending its national team to the neighbouring nation due to political and security reasons.

A similar scenario emerged during the recently held Asia Cup, which was originally scheduled in Pakistan. However, after India decided against sending its team to the country, the tournament was held under hybrid model in Sri Lanka.

Four Asia Cup matches were played in Pakistan, whereas, the remainder of the tournament was held in Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has urged the ICC to sign the Champions Trophy 2025 hosting rights agreements with it, stressing that the PCB should be compensated if India refuse to travel to the country citing political and security reasons, reports said on November 26.

A highly reliable source in the PCB told news agency PTI that while the ICC has marked Pakistan as the host of the tournament, the global body is yet to sign the important hosting agreement with it.

The source reportedly disclosed that PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf and COO Salman Naseer had met the ICC executive board in Ahmedabad to discuss the hosting of the Champions Trophy in Pakistan in February-March, 2025.

“Pakistani officials discussed the probability of the Indian board (BCCI) again refusing to send its team to Pakistan and made it clear that in any given situation the ICC must avoid taking unilateral decisions on the tournament," the person was quoted as saying.

He said the PCB officials had told ICC that if India refuses to play in Pakistan on security grounds, the global body should appoint an independent security agency.

The PCB further said the agency could liaison with Pakistan government and security officials to assess the security situation of the participating teams including India.

“The PCB officials said many top teams had toured Pakistan in the last two years without any security concerns.

“They also made it clear that in case of India not sending its team and its matches being moved to another country, then the ICC must compensate Pakistan for this," the source was further quoted as saying.

Airbus to scale up defence production with Tata arm

Posted By: Aditya Gogoi Posted On: Nov 27, 2023
In 2021, IAF signed an agreement with Airbus for 56 C295 military transport aircraft for ?21,395 crore.

Airbus S.A.S. is planning to enhance its partnership with Tata Advanced Systems to broaden India’s defence supply chain, as well as launch new products to cater to the country’s defence needs, Jorge Tamarit-Degenhardt, who heads the C295 transport aircraft programme for Airbus, said in an interview.

According to Tamarit, Airbus and Tata will invest in developing capabilities, including acquiring raw material and manufacturing detailed parts, or subcomponents, as well as establishing sub-assembly and assembly facilities. The programme will be in phases, with an initial focus on sourcing components such as metallic and composite manufacturing technologies, he added.

“We work with Tata and we train Tata. Then, it's up to them to decide whether they make or buy the components. Whenever they are selecting a supplier or MSME (micro, small, and medium enterprises), they need to satisfy some requirements which have been set up by Airbus. So, we are doing the assessment of the suppliers. We are qualifying them and whenever there is a gap, supporting them. In the first stage, most resourcing will be metallic and composite manufacturing technologies." The firm will also prioritize electric harnesses in its efforts to strengthen India's supply chain, he said without providing details of the investments. It aims to fulfil the demand for military transport aircraft as India works towards replacing its aging military transport fleet.

In 2021, the Indian Air Force had signed an agreement with Airbus for 56 C295 military transport aircraft, for ₹21,395 crore. Around 16 of these aircraft will be acquired in a ready-to-fly condition from the final assembly line at San Pablo Sur site in Seville, Spain. The first aircraft was handed over by Airbus earlier this year in the presence of Air Chief Marshal Vivek Ram Chaudhuri. Around 40 C295s will be manufactured locally requiring investments from both Airbus and Tata Advanced Systems to establish the defence supply chain.

According to Tamarit, Airbus aims to leverage this supply chain not only for additional transport aircraft but also for other defence platforms and offerings, given that the Indian military requires an estimated 100 aircraft. Airbus and Tata expect to deliver the first India-manufactured C295 in 2026 from their final assembly line in Vadodara, which will be operational by November 2024.

Component production for the aircraft has started at the main constituent assembly facility in Hyderabad, Airbus said. Other foreign defence firms, such as Brazil's aviation major Embraer, are also exploring establishing manufacturing facilities in India. Mint earlier reported that Embraer is in talks with the Tatas and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd to manufacture defence transport aircraft in India.

Following the Centre's push to encourage global defence companies to “Make in India", there's a concerted effort to establish a robust domestic defence supply chain. New Delhi's initiatives include releasing indigenization lists, boosting domestic procurement in Defence Acquisition Procedure 2020, and promoting defence industrial corridors. These measures aim to facilitate the entry of foreign firms into the Indian market, support defence startups, and boost research within the country. “Airbus and Tata partnering is an example of two giants coming together and building synergies to come up with something remarkable and much needed for economic growth. Such partnerships are bringing in capital from the global market and immense global experience and in turn getting access to skilled manpower, market, local trust of capability and delivery and a brand which has been synonymous of delivering business for the greater good," said Brajesh Singh, president, Arthur D. Little India.

Tata Advanced Systems Limited did not comment on the matter.
