Burmese military officials have called on their Thai counterparts to help capture Kokang rebel leader Peng Jiasheng who they claim is hiding in Thailand.
Chinese Ambassador Yang Houlan said Beijing made contact with MNDAA leader Peng Jiasheng to seek an end to the hostilities.
A war of propaganda has been evident over the past months; Myawady has gone to lengths to explain the strategies employed in capturing Kokang outposts.
Conflict rages in the Kokang region. Meanwhile, a three-month presidential decree imposing martial law is set to expire on 17 May.
The house of the head of a loyalist rebel faction comes under shell fire in Laogai.
