Later this week, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen will fly into Myanmar, which has been riddled with violence since a military coup last year.
But he holds out hope of a peaceful solution to the ongoing crisis in the country as he prepares for a visit on Jan. 7 in a bid to bring Myanmar back into the fold of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The country was isolated by the bloc last year, especially over junta boss Min Aung Hlaing’s failure to keep his promise to the group to implement a peace plan.
During the visit, Hun Sen will meet with top junta leaders including Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. But will he be able to meet Myanmar’s political icon and most famous prisoner, State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi?
