At the end of 2022, the military council made an effort to gain international recognition. I prepared to host the Mekong-Lanman Summit in Myanmar. The meeting was to be attended by the leaders of the Mekong Basin countries. However, the main power China did not respond to attend, so the meeting was cancelled. If the meeting is successful, military leader Min Aung Hlaing will have the first official meeting with the leaders of other countries. The rest of the countries on the Mekong River, such as Thailand, Laos Cambodia Vietnam is the only country that accepts the military council. Because of China’s position, the plan of the military council did not reach the quorum.
It is believed that China avoided the meeting because it would appear to support the military council over ASEAN’s decision. Just after this issue, a new Chinese representative arrived in Myanmar, but nothing was said about it. It has been a long time since the Military Council made any concessions to China. Now, the relationship between China and the Military Council is getting bigger. It is a force for revolution. It is necessary for the democratic forces to be able to make good use of this. If China can be mobilized, if China abandons the military council completely, this match could be over quickly.
