16 Oct 2021

On 17 October, Reuters reported that in an unprecedented move, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has decided to exclude the Junta representative from its Annual Summit and invite a non-political representative from Myanmar. The decision came about in the light of the lack of progress made on a roadmap that the junta had agreed to with ASEAN in April to restore peace in Myanmar.
