PHNOM PENH, Feb 3 (Reuters) – Cambodia’s foreign ministry said on Thursday that a non-political representative from Myanmar had been invited to attend a meeting of Southeast Asian foreign ministers later this month rather than the country’s military-appointed foreign minister.
Cambodia Foreign Ministry spokesman Chum Sounry said members of the bloc had not reached a consensus on inviting Myanmar’s foreign minister amid a lack of progress in meeting a peace plan agreed with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Cambodia is the current chair of the 10-member bloc.
