The People’s Republic of China expressed the support for Cambodia as the rotating chair of ASEAN in resolving the political conflict in Myanmar.
The support was underlined by Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson H.E. Wang Wenbin during his regular press conference early this week.
“China will fully support Cambodia, the rotating chair of ASEAN, in playing an active role and making important contribution to properly managing the differences among parties of Myanmar through political dialogue and restoring stability and achieving development at an early date,” said H.E. Wang Wenbin.
He added that China appreciates Myanmar’s readiness to create favourable conditions for ASEAN’s special envoy to fulfil his duty, and works toward effective alignment between Myanmar’s five-point roadmap and ASEAN’s five-point consensus.
Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen made a two-day visit, on Jan. 7-8, to Myanmar and met with H.E. Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, Chairman of the State Administration Council and Prime Minister of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
On the occasion, H.E. Senior General Ming Aung Hlaing has agreed to extend the five-month ceasefire with all Ethnic Armed Organisations (EAOs) until end of 2022, and welcomed the participation of the special envoy of the ASEAN Chair on Myanmar to join the ceasefire talks.
As the ASEAN Chair, Samdech Techo Hun Sen continued proposing more initiatives to achieve peace and further development in Myanmar.
