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,

"The North Koreans are said to be assembling 'SAM missiles' of unknown origin,'" the cable continues.


However, the cable concludes that, "We cannot, and readers should not, consider this report alone to be definitive proof or evidence of sizable North Korean military involvement with the Burmese regime. The...description made no reference at all to nuclear weapons or technology, or to surface-to-surface missiles, ballistic or otherwise."
