Myanmar has reportedly been involved in the construction of an underground facility and has been assembling surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) in Burma with help from North Korea, according to recently published diplomatic cables by Wikileaks on Friday.

The leaked cable dating from August 2004 and sent from the US Embassy in Rangoon, alleges that "some 300 North Koreans are working at a secret construction site west of Mimbu, Magway Division, in the foothills of the Arakan Yoma mountains."

The cables details that North Korean workers, aided by Burmese and possibly Chinese workers, "are forbidden from leaving the construction site" and "other 'outsiders' are prohibited from entering."
