China urges ceasefire in Myanmar after fighting in country’s north

Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Friday that it’s following reports of military conflicts in Myanmar and called on relevant parties to ceasefire and stop fighting as soon as possible. 

“China called on the relevant parties to resolve differences peacefully through dialogue and consultation, avoid escalation of incidents and take concrete and effective measures to ensure security and stability of the China-Myanmar border,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning told a daily press briefing.

The remarks came after military positions of Myanmar’s army in the country, including the northern Shan State, were attacked on Friday by Myanmar’s ethnic armed groups, resulting in fierce fighting.
