ASEAN leaders attain consensus on Myanmar


Southeast Asian leaders agreed to a five-point consensus on the crisis in Myanmar, including an immediate end to violence, Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) chair Brunei said on Saturday.

Brunei said the consensus agreed also included the start of talks among all parties concerned “to seek a peaceful solution in the interests of the people.” A special envoy of the ASEAN chair would facilitate mediation of the dialogue process, Brunei said after a special meeting of ASEAN, of which Myanmar is a member, to address the crisis following the coup. Meanwhile, Myanmar’s parallel National Unity Government said it welcomed “encouraging” news. — Reuters
