PHONM PENH, Aug 5 (Reuters) – Southeast Asia’s regional bloc ASEAN is “deeply disappointed” by the limited progress made by Myanmar’s military rulers in implementing a peace agreement to end the conflict in the country, a communique issued by its foreign ministers said.
The communique on Friday recommended that the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ summit in November assess progress on implementing the “five-point consensus” by military authorities in Myanmar “to guide the decision on the next steps”.
