ASEAN siding with the enemiover Myanmar


An ASEAN-led diplomatic initiative has been launched by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, and Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong have launched an Asean-led diplomatic for stopping the ruthless killing being taken place in Mayanmar by Junta.
However, Indonesia is now confronted with the painful reality that opposition to coordinated measures to end grave human rights atrocities in Myanmar comes from the military regime and inside ASEAN.
Brunei’s abstention from a recent United Nations General Assembly resolution strongly condemning Myanmar’s military coup indicates the ASEAN rotating chair’s unwillingness to implement the five-point consensus reached in Jakarta on April 24 by ASEAN leaders and Myanmar junta leader Gen Min Aung Hlaing.
The resolution urges Myanmar’s military government to complete the country’s democratic transition, condemns the junta’s “excessive and deadly violence” since the coup, and urges all countries to “block the flow of weaponry into Myanmar.”
The resolution further demands that President Win Myint, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, and other government officials and politicians jailed following the coup be released immediately and unconditionally, as well as “all individuals who have been unlawfully detained, prosecuted, or arrested.”
