Dr. VladimirVasiliev in his article Tension in the ASEAN and around over Myanmar question and Myanmar's efforts to find new world partners describes Myanmar's present external and internal difficulties (non-admission to chairing the 2006 ASEAN meeting, economic and other sanctions imposed by the US and EU and constant criticism leveled by the West and some ASEAN countries over Myanmar delay with promised democratic reforms). This seems to have greatly fatigued Myanmar's ruling junta and it has decided to make certain changes in its foreign policy accents toward enlargement and differentiation of its international partners. As a result Myanmar established closer ties with India, renewed its broad cooperation with Russia, reestablished diplomatic relations with North Korea (in addition to long-time close ties with China). The author believes that the Myanmar junta, making these rearrangements, hopes to raise its poor international image and standing, improve and diversify economically and to rearm as far as possible.
