Who is selling weapons to Myanmar?

Latest news

    The Myanmar army has shaped the country’s politics and external affairs since it gained independence from the British in 1948.

    For more than half a century the army ruled with an iron fist. Since the early 1990s it was subject to various embargoes and sanctions from the European Union and the US.

    In 2012, as the country underwent a so-called democratic transition some of these sanctions were eased, though an EU arms embargo is still in effect.
