Southeast Asian foreign ministers have urged for a “Myanmar-owned and led solution” to the ongoing crisis in Myanmar. The call was made during a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) foreign ministers in Laos, where an official from Myanmar attended for the first time in two years. The ministers also expressed support for the efforts of Laos’s special envoy on the crisis in engaging with all concerned parties. The crisis in Myanmar began when the military seized power in a coup three years ago, leading to mass protests and an armed uprising. Thousands have been killed and tens of thousands detained since then. ASEAN has been leading diplomatic efforts on Myanmar but has made little progress so far. The military government has also accused ASEAN of interfering in its internal affairs.
