UN Security Council to meet on Friday over Myanmar crisis

The UN Security Council will meet on Friday with a minister from Asean chair Cambodia to discuss the chaotic situation in Myanmar, one year after a coup ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, diplomatic sources said.

Cambodia currently heads the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and its Asean envoy to Myanmar, Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn, will attend the closed-door talks along with United Nations special envoy for Myanmar Noeleen Heyzer, the sources told Agence France-Presse.

The minister is expected to report on the controversial visit to Myanmar in early January by Cambodia’s strongman ruler Hun Sen, who met the junta in the first foreign leadership visit since the generals seized power last February.
