No ‘significant progress’ in implementing ASEAN’s five-point agreement on Myanmar: PM Lee to PM Hun Sen

The MFA said, “Prime Minister Lee expressed his view that until significant progress is made in implementing the Five-Point Agreement, ASEAN is required to invite a non-political representative of Myanmar to ASEAN meetings at the 38th And the 39th ASEAN summit must uphold its decision.” ,

“Any discussion to modify the decision of the ASEAN leaders must be based on new facts. Prime Minister Li stressed the need for the ASEAN president to include all relevant parties, including the Tatmadaw and the National League for Democracy (NLD), said the ministry.

“Tatmadaw only proposed a ceasefire with ethnic armed organizations, but the five-point consensus also referred to a call for an end to violence, and indeed primarily, to violence against Tatmadaw’s political opponents and civilians. “

Just days after Mr. Hun Sen’s visit, there were further attacks by the Tatmadaw against his political opponents, and Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi was given an additional prison sentence, Mr. Lee said.

According to the MFA, the Cambodian PM also proposed on how to coordinate the ceasefire in Myanmar and provide humanitarian aid to the people.

Mr. Lee said he was unsure what role ASEAN or the ASEAN President’s Special Envoy on Myanmar might play in coordinating the ceasefire because “we did not have access to all parties”, according to the MFA.

“However, Singapore had no in-principle objection to such a mechanism if it could put an end to the violence,” the MFA said.

Mr. Lee said that the participation of the ASEAN Coordinating Center for Humanitarian Assistance on Disaster Management (AHA Center) and cooperation with Tatmadaw needed to provide humanitarian assistance for progress.

They agreed that the proposals raised by Cambodia should be discussed further between ASEAN Foreign Ministers and senior officials.

“Prime Minister Lee hoped that Cambodia would consider the views of him and other ASEAN leaders,” the MFA said.

“They reaffirmed Singapore’s commitment to working with Cambodia and other ASEAN member states on the full implementation of the ASEAN Five Point Agreement and relevant ASEAN decisions.”

Mr. Lee also reaffirmed Singapore’s support for Cambodia’s ASEAN Presidency and thanked Mr. Hun Sen for the briefing.
