The Malaysian Foreign Ministry has issued a statement outraging the Malaysian foreign minister’s statement that he would propose to ASEAN to engage informally with the National Unity Government (NUG).
A statement from the Wunna Maung Lwin Office said that the Anti-Terrorism Committee had already declared the NUG (CRPH) and PDFs terrorist groups and did not need to be contacted.
The statement said the Malaysian minister’s remarks violated international anti-terrorism agreements. The Wunna Maung Lwin office was the only one to protest, but the Malaysian government and foreign minister did not appear to be interested in the statement. Since the government was not recognized by the government, it did not seem to know or be interested in the anti-terrorism law.
The Malaysian minister has said he will propose engagement with the NUG / CRPH / NUCC at the ASEAN foreign ministers’ meeting on May 5. Even Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, the current chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), has spoken out against South Korea, but has been reluctant to show international representation in Burma. The current situation is that the president of Tatarstan, which has a population of just over 3 million, is being referred to as the president.
