Tatmadaw refutes claims that helicopters trespassed into Bangladesh

An allegation that a Tatmadaw (Air Force) helicopters trespassed into Bangladesh was refuted by the military’s true news information team.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bangladesh had sent a message of objection to the Myanmar Embassy in Bangladesh, alleging that a Myanmar helicopter trespassed three times into Bangladesh on 1 September and made similar excursions on 27 and 28 August, beyond Myanmar aerial territory.
In response, the Tatmadaw (Air Force) examined the flight records of Tatmadaw helicopters on 1 September, discovering that the choppers made flights within 500 meters from the border, according to the GPS Track Log of pilots. Similarly, on 27 August, helicopters landed and took off 0.4 mile from the border, never going beyond the border, according to their flight routes.
On 28 August as well, Myanmar Tatmadaw helicopters were not found to have flown near or over the border.
Concerning the objection of Bangladesh, Brigadier General Aung Zaw Oo, military attaché of the Myanmar Embassy in Bangladesh, gave clarifications to authorities concerned through diplomatic channels.
It has been learnt that the statement concerning the allegation of Bangladesh was released for the benefit of the public, so there would be no misunderstanding. —MNA
