Cambodia PM appeals to Myanmar junta for access to Aung San Suu Kyi

Cambodia’s prime minister has urged Myanmar’s top general to allow a special Southeast Asian envoy access to ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, in his strongest call so far for the junta chief to demonstrate commitment to a regional peace process.

Hun Sen, chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), in a video call on Monday (May 2) told Min Aung Hlaing it was crucial the envoy meets all stakeholders in Myanmar, including Aung San Suu Kyi, who in recent months has been convicted of corruption and incitement.

Myanmar has been in turmoil since Min Aung Hlaing led a coup against Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government 15 months ago.
