ASEAN delegates meet Myanmar military chief

Two representatives of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations have visited Myanmar to discuss the situation following February's coup.

Erywan Yusof, the second minister of foreign affairs for Brunei, and Lim Jock Hoi, ASEAN secretary-general, met Myanmar's military chief Min Aung Hlaing in Naypyitaw on Friday.

They reportedly discussed the so-called Five-Point Consensus reached at a meeting of ASEAN leaders in April.

It calls for an immediate cessation of violence in Myanmar and a visit by an ASEAN envoy to mediate between the junta and pro-democracy groups.

The international community has voiced doubts about the effectiveness of the agreement, because no specific steps have been taken and security forces have continued their crackdown against civilians.

Observers say Friday's talks were aimed at boosting the implementation of the agreement.
