ASEAN Special Envoy on Second Visit to Myanmar; No Meeting With Suu Kyi

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Special Envoy on Myanmar will start his second tour to the country on Wednesday, following up on the bloc’s peace plan and humanitarian assistance for the country that has been in social, political and economic turmoil since last year’s coup.

Cambodia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the trip to Myanmar aimed to “contribute to building an environment conducive to an inclusive political dialogue through the meetings with all parties concerned.”
