Myanmar military will not allow ASEAN envoy to meet Aung San Suu Kyi

CNA – Myanmar’s ruling military has not blocked a special Southeast Asian envoy from visiting the country but will not allow him to meet detained former leader Aung San Suu Kyi, because she is charged with crimes, the junta’s spokesman said.

A delay in the United Nations (UN) approving the military government’s UN ambassador nomination was politically motivated, spokesman Zaw Min Tun added, saying the UN and other countries and organisations “should avoid double standards when they are engaging in international affairs”.
