Asean will have to rethink peace plan if Myanmar conducts more executions, says Cambodian PM

Asean will be forced to rethink peace plans made with Myanmar if the country’s military rulers conduct more executions of prisoners, Cambodian Prime Minister and Asean chair Hun Sen said on Wednesday (Aug 3).

The regional bloc recently condemned the execution of four activists by Myanmar’s military and has since last year been pushing for Myanmar to adhere to the Five-Point Consensus, drawn up in an attempt to bring an end to the violence and instability in the country.

Mr Hun Sen was speaking at the start of the 55th Asean Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM) in Phnom Penh. Cambodia is the current chair of Asean.
