Malaysian PM too expresses support for calling ASEAN Summit on Myanmar

Malaysia Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has also endorsed the calls by Indonesian President Joko Widodo for convening an ASEAN Summit on the situation in Myanmar. 

Muhyiddin in a statement said the persistent use of lethal violence against unarmed civilians was unacceptable, and urged Myanmar’s military leadership “to change its course and choose a path towards peaceful solutions”. 

“There is no question about it — the use of live ammunition against peaceful protests is unacceptable. This deplorable situation must stop immediately,” Muhyiddin said. 

“We in Malaysia, and the larger Asean community, cannot afford to see our brotherly nation of Myanmar become so destabilised at the hands of a selected few, who seek to promote their own vested interests,” he said.
