Cambodian envoy urges Myanmar to send Suu Kyi home from prison

Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn asks regime to pursue 'inclusive' reconciliation.

Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn has urged Myanmar’s military regime to return Aung San Suu Kyi to house arrest, after the ousted de facto leader was transferred to prison last week.

Sokhonn, who is the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ special envoy for Myanmar, expressed his concern in a letter to Wunna Maung Lwin, the foreign minister appointed by Myanmar’s military, which calls its regime the State Administrative Council (SAC).

“I have no doubt that the same concern resonates beyond ASEAN, considering that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is regarded internationally and by many in Myanmar as having a critical role in your country’s return to normalcy and national reconciliation through a peaceful political solution,” he wrote, according to a statement released by Cambodia’s Foreign Ministry on Monday.
