WASHINGTON, May 11 (Reuters) – U.S Indo-Pacific coordinator Kurt Campbell on Wednesday said Washington wants members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to play a more deeply engaged role in diplomacy on the next steps in Myanmar following the coup there last year.
ASEAN has disinvited the leader of Myanmar from the grouping’s meetings and the leader of the country’s ruling junta will not attend meetings between the regional blocs leaders and U.S. President Joe Biden in Washington this week.
