Southeast Asian Leaders Struggle With Question of Myanmar Violence

THE I DIPLOMAT
David Rising and Sopheng Cheang
November 11, 2022

ASEAN’s member states continue to be divided on how to handle their problem member, as the country’s conflict continues to worsen.


Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) leaders struggled Friday to come to a consensus on how to pressure Myanmar to comply with a plan for peace, with violence in the member state spiraling out of control since the military seized power in 2021.

The group has banned leaders of Myanmar, also known as Burma, from participating in its top-level events, like the ongoing summit in Phnom Penh, in an effort to pressure them to comply with ASEAN’s Five-Point Consensus plan for peace, so far with little effect.

Challenging Malaysia’s Moral Authority on Myanmar

THE I DIPLOMAT
Luke Hunt
October 26, 2022

Deportations of Myanmar asylum seekers and the failure to act on Rohingya death camps are disheartening.

Malaysia has long sought to bolster its diplomatic stocks by exerting its religious credentials through the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and, closer to home, within ASEAN, where it has forged a troika with fellow Muslim countries Indonesia and Brunei.

The troika is an admirable club that emerged after the military in Myanmar, or Tatmadaw, inflicted an ethnic cleansing and alleged genocide against that country’s Muslim Rohingya community in 2017, resulting in more than 1.4 million of them now living in squalid camps in neighboring Bangladesh.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today (September 22, 2022) called upon the international community to take five actions to resolve the prolonged Rohingya crisis, including political and financial support to them.

She made the call at a high-level side event on the Rohingya crisis held at Lotte Palace New York Hotel.

Focusing on the second action, Sheikh Hasina asked the world community to intervene in the proceedings before the International Court of Justice, International Criminal Court and national courts, including supporting the Gambia in the ICJ, in order to enforce international law and to strengthen the fight against human rights violations in Myanmar.

In a recent discussion to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the genocidal acts against the Rohingya minority by Myanmar’s military, civil society groups and Myanmar’s government in exile, the National Unity Government (NUG) urged Indonesia and ASEAN to take tougher actions against the Myanmar junta for the safety of the Rohingya people.

Group seeks recognition as 'legitimate government'; ASEAN summit rumblings intensify
Myanmar's detained leader Aung San Suu Kyi is named state counselor on her followers' list of new National Unity Government members.

YANGON/BANGKOK -- Myanmar's military on Feb. 1 detained State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint in the country's first coup since 1988, bringing an end to a decade of civilian rule.

The Suu Kyi-led National League for Democracy had won a landslide in a general election in November. But the military has claimed the election was marred by fraud.

Sanctions Won't Hurt Myanmar's Brutal Leaders, Activists Say. Here's What Could

The U.S. imposed new sanctions on senior leaders of Myanmar’s military junta on Monday—the eve of the one-year anniversary of their overthrow of the country’s democratically elected government and imprisonment of its leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.

The U.S., joined by the U.K., and Canada, announced sanctions on officials who helped prosecute Aung San Suu Kyi, the head of the National League for Democracy. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate was arrested in the Feb. 1, 2021 coup. Myanmar courts have sentenced her to a total of six years in prison as of Jan. 10—but she faces additional charges.

Arsa is being used to destabilize the Rohingya camp

Former Foreign Secretary and North South University South Asian Institute of Policy Governance Fellow Professor. Shahidul Haque said many believe that the Myanmar army is using the terrorist group Arsa to destabilize the Rohingya camp in Cox’s Bazar. If the Rohingyas do not unite now, Arsa’s dominance will expand. This will weaken the efforts to establish the rights of the Rohingya.

Shahidul Haque made the remarks at a webinar on Thursday to establish justice for the Rohingya.

The talks were held on the sidelines of the 20th General Assembly of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The webinar was jointly organized by Bangladesh, Gambia and Brussels-based human rights group No Peace Without Justice. The discussion was moderated by Alison Smith, Director of No Peace Without Justice.

A summit of south-east Asian leaders has begun without a representative from Myanmar after its junta leader was excluded for failure to follow a regional peace deal and the ruling military refused to send junior representation.

Neither Brunei, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) chair, nor the bloc’s secretary-general made a mention of the no-show in opening remarks at the virtual meeting.

ASEAN must reaffirm commitment for rights of Rohingya refugees -- Syed Hamid Albar

28/10/2021

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 28 -- The 38th and 39th ASEAN Summits that will be wrapped up today is a watershed moment for ASEAN to re-affirm its commitment to human rights, particularly the rights of the Rohingya who were forced to flee Myanmar, said Chairman of the Malaysian Advisory Group on Myanmar and former foreign minister Tan Sri Dr Syed Hamid Albar.

Syed Hamid said that while he appreciates ASEAN's necessary – or bold as said by some – decision to exclude Myanmar's Senior General Min Aung Hlaing from the summit, “the summit must recognise that (the) Rohingya will remain displaced for years to come and begin coordinating contingency planning.

Regional bloc has a bevy of good reasons to block junta representatives from attending this month's summit meeting

Has the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for the first time foregone its longstanding policy of “non-interference” in the internal affairs of one of its ten member states by blocking a representative of Myanmar’s junta from attending the bloc’s upcoming summit in Brunei? And, if so, why?

EU Parliament Voices Support for Myanmar’s Opposition Government

THE I DIPLOMAT
By Sebastian Strangio
October 11, 2021

Despite the motion, Western support for the National Unity Government is likely to remain informal and unofficial.

The European Parliament has voted to support Myanmar’s shadow National Unity Government (NUG) and its parliamentary committee as the legitimate representatives of crisis-hit Myanmar.

In a resolution adopted late last week, the European Parliament expressed its “support for the people of Myanmar in their struggle for democracy, freedom, and human rights.” It said that it “supports the CRPH [Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw] and the NUG as the only legitimate representatives of the democratic wishes of the people of Myanmar” and called on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and other foreign governments “to include and involve them in genuine and inclusive political dialogue and efforts aimed at the peaceful resolution of the crisis.”

Myanmar has been in a state of severe crisis since the coup, which immediately prompted a nationwide movement of protests and work stoppages, which have been complemented in recent months by growing armed resistance.

China Doesn’t Want Myanmar’s NLD Dissolved: Informed Sources

China has voiced concern over the Myanmar military regime’s plan to dissolve the National League for Democracy (NLD), the party that won the junta-annulled 2020 general election in a landslide, several informed sources told The Irrawaddy. Chinese officials have conveyed to the regime’s leaders Beijing’s message that it wants to see the NLD continue to exist as a political party, they said.

Politicians close to the NLD and several China-Myanmar watchers said the Chinese recently told Myanmar officials that China will continue to support Myanmar and maintain border trade and infrastructure projects on one condition: that the junta keeps the NLD alive.
