JAKARTA, KOMPAS - The international community will focus its attention on Jakarta on Saturday (24/4/2021), namely at the ASEAN summit.

Some parties hope that the meeting of ASEAN leaders will open up opportunities for an end to violence and to initiate peaceful and democratic efforts for Myanmar.

In an online press conference on Thursday (22/4), a spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry of Thailand, Tanee Sangrat, said ASEAN was aware of the international community\'s hope that the meeting in Jakarta would produce concrete results. "Now, it is up to ASEAN members, including Myanmar, to maintain ASEAN unity and credibility," he said.
