Who is supplying weapons to Myanmar?
In the backdrops of Rohingya crisis, Al Jazeera has portrayed the flow of weapons to Myanmar from different parts of the world.
According to the graphics produced by the international broadcaster, most of Myanmar's military imports come from China, Russia, India, Israel and Ukraine.
Majority of Myanmar's fighter aircraft, armored vehicles, guns and naval ships come from China, while Russia is the main provider of surface-to-air missiles, it reports.
Since the independence from British in 1948, the Myanmar army has shaped the country's politics and external affairs.
For more than half a century the army ruled with an iron fist.
Later it was subject to various embargoes and sanctions from the European Union and the US since the early 1990s.
In 2012, as the country underwent a so-called democratic transition some of these sanctions were eased, though an EU arms embargo is still in effect, it adds.
