Myanmar’s future ASEAN attendance ‘the million dollar question’ – Malaysia minister

October 28, 2021By Reuters

It remains unclear whether Myanmar will attend the next meetings of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), after its junta this week chose not to send non-political representation, Malaysian Foreign Minister said on Thursday.

Asked if Myanmar would continue to be part of ASEAN meetings, Saifuddin Abdullah told a news conference: “That’s the million dollar question which I cannot answer.”

He stressed that the no-show was Myanmar’s decision.
