China warns Myanmar After Bombing

China’s military will take “decisive” measures if there is a repeat attack by Myanmar forces on its territory, a senior military officer said after a bomb from a Myanmar aircraft killed four people.
Myanmar government forces have been battling rebels on the border with China since last month and China has urged Myanmar to “lower the temperature”, Reuters reported. But Myanmar denied that any bomb from its forces had fallen in China and said the rebels might have fired into China to create “misunderstanding”. The rebels do not have aircraft.
China’s air force has dispatched planes to patrol the border and step up protection of its airspace. Beijing has also summoned Myanmar’s ambassador to complain about the bombing.
Fan Changlong, who is a deputy head of the powerful Central Military Commission, said Myanmar air force aircraft had crossed the border “many times” recently, China’s defense ministry said in a statement late on Saturday.
“The Myanmar side must recognize the seriousness of the issue, seriously deal with this incident, punish those who caused the trouble, apologize and pay compensation to family members, and explain themselves to China,” Fan was cited as telling Myanmar’s military in an emergency telephone call.
