MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
We note the balanced and responsible approach of the ASEAN member states when considering the situation in Myanmar at the extraordinary summit on April 24 this year. in Jakarta, the emphasis on the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of this country, the intention of the “ten” to continue the regional dialogue with the inadmissibility of external pressure. We support the “Five-Point Consensus” adopted following the discussion, which in many respects echoes Russian approaches, including an appeal to all parties in Myanmar to avoid violence, show maximum restraint and flexibility, and seek a peaceful solution through constructive dialogue.
We presume that the document approved in Jakarta takes into account the interests and concerns of all participants in the internal political process in Myanmar and that the implementation of the initiatives laid down in it, including the appointment of a special envoy for the ASEAN chairmanship with the assistance of the Secretary General of the Ten, will contribute to resolving the situation.
We are ready, together with our regional partners Naypyidaw, to help find ways to normalize the situation in friendly Myanmar.
