Myanmar Foreign Minister excluded from ASEAN-India meeting – The Hindu

The Foreign Minister of Myanmar was not part of the 24th ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations)-India Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM) held in New Delhi on Wednesday, an official source has confirmed. Myanmar’s representation at the meeting was in focus as India had been under pressure to avoid Myanmar’s inclusion in the high-level meeting. The other factor behind Myanmar’s absence is the souring ASEAN-Myanmar ties that were affected beginning with the February 1, 2021 coup that overthrew the Aung San Suu Kyi government in Myanmar.
