The bomb hit a sugarcane field in the border city of Lincang and killed four people working there on Friday afternoon. Nine others were also injured. Liu condemned the incident in the sugarcane field and urged the Myanmar side to thoroughly investigate the case and inform the Chinese side of the result. He also urged the Myanmar side to punish the perpetrator, appropriately handle the aftermath, and take immediate and effective measures to prevent recurrence of such incidents and safeguard the security and stability in the border areas between China and Myanmar. Earlier this week, China urged stability in its border area with Myanmar as well as the northern part of the southeast Asian country which have been hit by conflict recently. “It serves the common interests of the two nations and two peoples,” Foreign Minister Wang Yi. The minister also reiterated that what happened in northern Myanmar is the internal affair of the country. “We hope the conflict can be resolved peacefully,” he said. China, which adheres to the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, has made it clear that it respects Myanmar’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. The relations between China and Myanmar, who share a border line of over 2,000 km, have been upgraded to a comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership. “We are friendly neighbors, sharing not just mountains and rivers, but also weal and woe,” Wang said. “When problems arise in our neighbor’s house, we are following the situation very closely.” The minister also pledged continued communication and cooperation with Myanmar, to jointly ensure tranquility in the two countries’ border area and safeguard safety of both peoples.http://en.people.cn/n/2015/0314/c90883-8862998.html

Yunnan worst hit by drug trafficking in China

KUNMING, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) — Drug trafficking in southwest China’s Yunnan Province remains a major problem after border police seized nearly five tonnes of narcotics in 2012, provincial border police said Tuesday.

Border police in Yunnan captured 2,820 suspects in 2,458 drug cases, seizing a total of 4.95 tonnes of narcotics last year, up 43 percent compared with 3.45 tonnes in 2011.

The drugs seized by border police accounted for 31 percent of the province’s total last year. It was also more than 80 percent of the country’s total of narcotics seized by border police.

Narcotics from abroad have been smuggled into Yunnan via multiple channels such as land, water and air transport in addition to postal services in recent years, said a provincial border police officer.

Yunnan, which has a 4,060-km-long border with Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, suffers from the notorious international drug source of the “Golden Triangle.”

In 2011, Yunnan seized 13.6 tonnes of narcotics in total, up 45.3 percent year on year. The drugs included 7.7 tonnes of methamphetamine, commonly known as “ice”, and 4.9 tonnes of heroin, which accounted for 60 percent and 70 percent of the country’s total respectively.

Police in southwest China’s Yunnan Province announced Monday that they have detained a drug trafficker from Myanmar and confiscated 14.9 kilograms of heroin.

The suspect was caught carrying 29 packages of heroin while crossing the China-Myanmar border in Gengma county in the city of Lincang at 11:35 p.m. on Sunday, a spokesman with the Lincang Public Security Bureau said.

The 32-year-old suspect confessed that she brought drugs across the border before being caught, the spokesman said.

Police are further investigating the case.
