- This paper provides a general review of the impressions, assessments and interactions between China and Aung San Suu Kyi (ASSK) from the earlier years of her confinement to the landmark victory of her party in the election into the new Myanmar government. With the changed political landscape and fresh domestic development in Myanmar, the role of ASSK in China and Myanmar relations assumes more importance and will shape both the direction and arrangements of the diplomatic relations between the two countries in the future. Based on the release of the U.S. diplomatic cables and other publically available materials, this paper reviews the development of the emerging relationship between China and Myanmar from the perspective of ASSK as an indispensable political figure. The analysis of the paper offers observations that provide context and insights into the important political dynamic between the two closely related neighbours.
