Cambodia’s Hun Sen gives up on Myanmar

Hun Sen officially threw in the towel on solving Myanmar’s political crisis Wednesday, as top diplomats from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) prepare for a retreat at which the junta’s failure to honor its commitments will likely loom large.

Only a month and a half into assuming the rotating leadership of ASEAN, Cambodia’s prime minister admitted that Myanmar’s military regime has made no progress in resolving the situation in the country and said it is unlikely to do so during the remainder of his year as chair.

“I’m in a situation where I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t, so just let it be,” the Cambodian strongman said while speaking in front of dignitaries, including Japanese Ambassador Mikami Masahiro, at the unveiling of a bridge in Kratie province.
