Cambodia’s Hun Sen urges Myanmar junta chief to allow humanitarian aid access

Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen urged Myanmar’s military ruler to allow a visit by a special envoy of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) and support humanitarian aid access, an official said on Wednesday.

Hun Sen as Asean chairman held a video call with military strongman Min Aung Hlaing and appealed to him to follow a five-point agreement to address the Myanmar conflict, Kao Kim Hourn, secretary of state at Cambodia’s foreign ministry, told reporters.

The consensus, which Min Aung Hlaing agreed to in a face-to-face meeting with Asean leaders in April last year, commits to ceasing hostilities, granting humanitarian access and supporting inclusive dialogue.
