The Union Minister appreciated the United States’ support to ASEAN’s effort in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, and encouraged the United States’ further support to ASEAN’s COVID-19 response initiatives as well as its continued support to ASEAN’s efforts on regional integration, especially through the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI).
With regard to developments in Myanmar, the Union Minister explained the security condition in the country, the implementation of the five-point roadmap of the State Administration Council and the five-point consensus of the ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting, including efforts on the provision of humanitarian assistance to the people of Myanmar in coordination with ASEAN.
The Union Minister urged the United States and the ASEAN Member States to condemn terrorist acts committed by NUG and CRPH. Their representation at the UN and other international fora is not legitimate and unacceptable.
