The Embassy warned Chinese citizens in Myanmar to watch out for their own safety by avoiding going to conflict areas. On 20 November 2016, military conflicts between the Tatmadaw and a few EAOs have broken out in Northern Myanmar near the China-Myanmar border. To escape the conflicts, some Myanmar nationals fled to the Chinese territory. For humanitarian considerations, the local Chinese government has taken in those who have crossed the border and sent the injured ones to hospitals for medical treatment. The Chinese Embassy in Myanmar urged all parties in the conflicts to exercise restraint by taking measures for an immediate ceasefire so as to resume peace in the China-Myanmar border area as soon as possible.
