Will Myanmar Become A Conduit For Iranian Crude Into China?

• by Eric Yep

On any other route, this would have been just another Iranian oil shipment. But using the Myanmar-China oil and gas pipeline brings new complications.

That's because the pipeline has a new avatar - it is now a part of China's Belt and Road Initiative, along with other large infrastructure projects that were not originally a part of BRI, but were included later to boost the profile of the program.

Sending Iranian crude through an oil pipeline with the "Belt and Road" label removes any doubts of whether BRI's projects have political motives or not.
