I understand that a few @ASEAN foreign ministers from nations like #Malaysia #Singapore & current @asean_ri chair #Indonesia will not participate in the talks mooted by #Thailand to take place in #Bangkok June 18-19. #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar
In the #Thai invite letter to @ASEAN foreign ministers, which I've also seen, @MFAThai minister Don says the "meeting is intended to be an informal dialogue that could be part of the initial steps of the #Myanmar peace process" #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar

At Shangri-la Dialogue #SLD2023, Dr Pål Jonson, Minister for Defence, Sweden highlighted the importance of protecting undersea infrastructures - internet cables, power cables and oil pipelines. Mentioned Nordstream pipeline sabotage. Image
I think this is an area that #ASEAN Defence agencies need to think about. But difficult due to capability gaps, and overlapping maritime EEZ claims, and China’s #maritime claims.

1/Yesterday a flotilla of #China maritime militia ships moving SE executed an unusual 90deg turn, spread out & began moving SW—on a course that would intriguingly lead them directly into the #ASEAN-#India Maritime Exercise group headed NE from Singapore.
But wait… [🧵1/5] Image
2/What I didn’t see then was the militia ships were escorting survey ship Xiang Yang Hong 10. While seeing #China’s survey ships in #Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone isn’t new, it’s odd to see them escorted by so many militia.
Wait, there’s more… [2/5]…
3/Three hours ago, 2 #China Coast Guard ships also suddenly appeared on AIS, visibly joining the flotilla. How long they’ve been there is unknown, but now they want to be seen.
Also of note, #Vietnam fisheries ship Kiem Ngu 414 began shadowing the flotilla yesterday.

The fourth round of negotiations on the proposed #SriLanka - #Thailand Free Trade Agreement (SLTFTA) was held in Colombo from 27 to 29 March 2023.

This initiative aligns with the President’s vision of enhancing economic relations with large and emerging economies, with a (1/4) Image
a particular focus on @ASEAN countries.

The 🇹🇭 delegation, along with their focus on trade negotiations, also strengthened the long-standing religious and cultural ties between the two countries by offering over 500 alms-bowls to the Gangaramaya temple. (2/4) ImageImageImage
The 🇱🇰 negotiating team’s goals for the talks focused not only to increase 🇱🇰 exports’ access to the 🇹🇭 market, but also to improve market access to other @ASEAN countries through the 🇹🇭 market and to reduce existing non-tariff barriers. (3/4)

Item 6 c) recommendations on possible norms, rules, and principles of responsible behaviour

Topic 1: norms, rules, and principles derived from existing international legal and other normative frameworks
#Russia continues to insist that NGOs are not permitted to make statements during the formal session.
#Canada respectfully disagrees with Russia. The matter is closed. The Chair has ruled and will not change established UN practice.

THREAD: Tough to see any real improvement if @ASEAN & #Myanmar #military fail to see eye-to-eye on how far 5-point consensus has come in last 16 months. #ASEAN has just given #Myanmar #military 3 more months till Nov to show results of 5-point plan. 1/5 #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar ImageImageImageImage

#Cambodia foreign minister Prak Sokhonn briefed diplomatic corps and journalists at the foreign ministry today on his second official trip to #Myanmar as #Asean special envoy. Here are some takeaways: ... 👇 ImageImageImage
1) Prak Sokhonn said despite requesting "again and again" to meet Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her lawyer(s) as well as ex-first lady Daw Su Su Lwin, he couldn't get access to them with reasons cited by #Tatmadaw:

- Cases in court proceeding (ASSK/Lawyer).
- Health condition (SSL).
2) After meeting #Tatmadaw boss Snr Gen Min Aung Hlaing and chief negotiator Lt Gen Yar Pyae, Prak Sokhonn said @NUGMyanmar's People's Defence Force appears to also have a "share of responsibility" on violence, vandalism, and murders of civil servants.
