Title: Myanmar generals visit arms maker in Russia
Date of publication: 12 October 2007
Description/subject: MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Myanmar military delegation visited Russia on Friday, a day after the Asian state's military junta was deplored by the United Nations for crushing pro-democracy protests. Two leading Russian newspapers said the delegation was discussing buying missile systems from Russia, which has in the past sold fighter planes to Myanmar and has said it believes sanctions against the junta are premature. A Russian Air Force spokesman said the delegation was headed by Lieutenant-General Myint Hlaing, commander of Myanmar's air defense forces. The spokesman declined to specify whether the visitors were buying arms.

Title: Myanmar and Russia: Strengthening Ties
Date of publication: 04 April 2007
Description/subject: "On 20 March 2007, the oil and gas ministry of Kalmykia (a constituent republic of the Russian Federation) signed an agreement with Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE) and Singapore's Silver Wave Energy for exploration and production of oil and gas from the B-2 onshore block, which borders India. According to reports quoting the Kalmykia republic's oil and gas minister, Boris Chedyrov, the participation will be "partial" with "only its specialists and drilling crews" taking part. Earlier in 2006, Russia's oil company Zarubezhneft and Myanmar's Energy Ministry signed a production-sharing contract for oil and gas exploration and production in Block M-8 of Mottama offshore fields in Southern Myanmar. Russia's importance for Myanmar was demonstrated earlier this year when it vetoed the US-sponsored resolution on Myanmar in the UN Security Council. Russia's veto (along with that of China's) was welcomed by Myanmar's junta. On several occasions its leadership has thanked Russia for vetoing the resolution, which from Myanmar's viewpoint, marks another cornerstone in its relations with Russia..."

Title: Myanmar: new field of Russia, China cooperation
Date of publication: 04 May 2006
Description/subject: "The Moscow visit of second in command in Myanmar Vice-Chairman of the State Peace and Development Council and Vice-Senior General Maung Aye is telling in many respects. Russian business and diplomacy have made a breakthrough in South-East Asia, a region where President Vladimir Putin attended the first ASEAN-Russia summit in Kuala Lumpur at the end of last year. ASEAN (the Association of South East Asian Nations), which unites the region's ten countries, conducts summits only with its closest partners. ASEAN's decision to make Russia a permanent participant of such summits (on a par with the heads of state or government of China, India and Japan, to name a few) reflected stronger political ties with Moscow and more active business contacts. Energy projects have always been Russia's obvious advantage. As for South East Asia, Moscow invests in oil and gas production in Vietnam and supplies Thailand with know-how and technologies. Now the Russian company Zarubezhneft has signed a memo of understanding in Moscow on strategic cooperation in the oil industry with the Myanmar Ministry of Energy..."
