BEIJING — Experts from China and Myanmar’s armed forces conducted a joint investigation on a Myanmar warplane bombing from March 24 to 26 in Lincang of Southwest China’s Yunnan province.

Defense Ministry spokesperson Geng Yansheng made the remarks at a regular press briefing on March 26.

On March 13, a bomb dropped by a Myanmar warplane hit a sugarcane field in Lincang, which borders the conflict-hit country. The incident killed five villagers and injured eight others.

After the incident, China lodged serious complaints with Myanmar. Myanmar expressed sorrow over the Chinese casualties.

Geng said China had a consistent and clear policy with regard to relations with Myanmar.

China respects Myanmar’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and it will not allow any organization or people, using China’s territory, to infringe upon China-Myanmar relations or stability in the border areas, Geng noted.
