When the military seized power in Myanmar on February 1, detaining elected officials, including the country's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Chinese state media avoided calling the coup a coup – instead reporting on a "major cabinet reshuffle."

Demonstrations have been staged in front of the Chinese Embassy in Yangon.
So – what are China's interests in Myanmar? And what does this mean for international efforts to stop the bloodshed in the country?
