Nov 3 (Reuters) – Myanmar will not allow a special ASEAN envoy to meet with detained former leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a top official in the ruling junta said, because it is beyond the country’s domestic laws.
Vice-Senior General Soe Win said no other country would allow such a move, as Suu Kyi is facing trial. Myanmar’s agreement on the envoy with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was that a visit would depend on internal stability, he said in remarks in state media.
