“In the discussion, both leaders stated their regrets and concerns on the security in Myanmar which have not shown any positive development.

“On this issue, the Prime Minister said that Malaysia and other ASEAN countries held a meeting in April to find a solution on the conflict in Myanmar,” said the statement.

Apart from that, Muhyiddin also held the view that UN and ASEAN could cooperate in looking for a resolution to the political crisis in Myanmar especially through the Five-Point Consensus reached during the ASEAN Leaders’ Conference.
