Miller Publishes Column on China-Myanmar Relations
Manjari Chatterjee Miller, Associate Professor of International Relations at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, published an article in Hindustan Times on the military coup in Myanmar and the country’s relationship with China. This is the eighth of Miller’s monthly columns in Hindustan Times.
In the article, titled “Myanmar-China ties: It’s complicated,” Miller discusses the turbulent relationship between China and Myanmar and how the recent military coup will effect future dealings between the two. Since both countries’ establishment, China and Myanmar – previously Burma – have had economic and strategic interests in one another. With the military now in control of Myanmar, Miller says nurturing the relationship could be difficult as “the generals make for uneasy bedfellows in a relationship that has had a long-and-turbulent history.”
