Cambodia PM calls on Myanmar’s junta leader to allow assistance and envoy visit to the country

Cambodia Prime Minister Hun Sen calls on Myanmar’s junta leader to allow a visit by an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) special envoy and to facilitate humanitarian aid access.

Hun Sen, in his capacity as Asean chairman, video called military military leader Min Aung Hlaing and made a plea with him to adhere to a five-point agreement to resolve the Myanmar conflict, a ccording to Kim Hourn, secretary of state of Cambodia’s foreign ministry.

Min Aung Hlaing agreed to the agreement in an April face-to-face meeting with Asean leaders. It pledges to ending hostilities, enabling humanitarian access, and promoting inclusive discussion.

“He requested that HE (his excellency) Min Aung Hlaing enable the first visit to Myanmar by an Asean special envoy in the future,” Kao Kim Hourn added.

“He urged all parties, including the Myanmar government, to halt bloodshed and negotiate a truce,” Kao Kim Hourn said, and encouraged him to join Asean nations in delivering humanitarian help to Myanmar’s “most affected citizens.”

Myanmar has been in turmoil since the military ousted an elected government about a year ago, with close to 1,500 people dead in the junta’s crackdown on opponents and forces battling pro-democracy militias and ethnic minority armies on many fronts.
