Singapore PM says Asean should keep excluding Myanmar junta from meetings



Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Asean should continue to exclude Myanmar’s junta leaders from meetings until headway is made on an agreement which includes a cessation of violence in the country.


The Association of Southeast Asian Nations should keep to its decision made at the bloc’s summit last year of inviting only a non-political representative from Myanmar to meetings until “significant progress” is made in implementing a five-point consensus between the grouping and Naypyidaw, Lee said during a call with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday.


With Cambodia now the rotating chair of Asean, Hun Sen last week became the first foreign leader to visit Myanmar since the junta seized power in a coup nearly a year ago.
