Malaysian PM visits Jakarta for ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting on Myanmar

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin landed at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang on Saturday morning to attend the ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting (ALM) on Myanmar.

On arrival at the airport at around 7:43 a.m. local time, Yassin was welcomed by the state’s head protocol, Andy Rachmianto, and the Malaysian Permanent Representative for ASEAN Kamsiah Kamaruddin.

Yassin, along with his limited entourage, immediately headed to the several vehicles provided to reach the VVIP waiting room of the Soekarno-Hatta Airport Terminal 3 VIP.

At that place, Yassin will undergo PCR swab tests and other health screenings mandated in the health protocols to prevent the coronavirus infection.

The Malaysian PM is visiting Indonesia to attend the ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting (ALM) scheduled to commence at the ASEAN Secretariat Building in Jakarta on Saturday afternoon.

Several issues, including the political crisis in Myanmar, will be discussed at the meeting.

Most ASEAN leaders, including Myanmar junta Min Aung Hlaing, will be present at the summit. However, the leaders of Thailand, Laos, and the Philippines were confirmed to be absent and would be represented by their top officials.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) recently highlighted his plans to broach the possibility of holding an ASEAN Summit to discuss the Myanmar issue with the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam, who is this year’s ASEAN chair.

Furthermore, the head of state stressed on holding dialog for reconciliation at the earliest to restore democracy, peace, and stability in the country.
