Chinese military has begun deploying tanks and other armored vehicles near the Myanmar border.  According to numerous witnesses, around 700 Chinese soldiers along with armoured vehicles and air defence systems will now head to Myanmar border area.

Photos from the sources showed a long column of vehicles, including armored personnel carriers, armoured rescue vehicles and construction vehicles in single file on a dual carriageway.
