myanmar: Foreign minister S Jaishankar, Thai minister hold discussions on Myanmar crisis | India News

NEW DELHI: Foreign minister S Jaishankar on Saturday held discussions with his Thai counterpart on the current situation in Myanmar.
After the meeting on the sidelines of UNGA in New York, he tweeted: “A good discussion on the situation in Myanmar with its other neighbour Thailand. Expressed our support for the Asean initiative to Thailand FM Don Pramudwinai.”
The talks were held after reports came of scores of Buddhist monks holding protests against the military junta in Yangon on Saturday. The reports quoting local groups said the junta had killed over 1,100 people and arrested over 8,400 in a brutal crackdown on protests. The UN, however, did little more than record Myanmar’s plight, with no agreement on how to move forward.
While Asian powers like China, India and Japan are against imposition of sanctions against the ruling regime, western powers are more than happy to slap them.
The UN has not yet given Myanmar’s seat to a representative of the military regime. The current envoy, Kyaw Moe Tun, will remain in his position after the UN’s credentials committee deferred a decision on it.
