Spokesperson of the 55th ASEAN Foreign Ministers, Kung Phoak Concerns on Myanmar and Tawain

PHNOM PENH: Spokesperson of the 55th ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting and Related Meetings H.E. Kung Phoak, was asked By EAC News Why Myanmar will have a representative at the AICHR, but will not have a representative at the ASEAN meeting, were all the ASEAN foreign Ministers will attend and be able to find out what is happing and even after receiving a letter from the ASEAN chair Man and Prime Minster of Cambodia Hun Sen, sending a letter advising against the execution, and ignored the Myanmar ignored his letter and other. Why wouldn’t ASEAN want Myanmar there so the Foreign Minister can give them some advice?

“All the things that we're doing and guided by the ASEAN fundamentals and we're talking about ASEAN same chart that the one of the peoples poses. But of course we've been trying to find ways to help as long as possible” The spokesman Kung Phoak said.

Kung Phoak also mentioned ASEAN will be celebrating their 55th anniversary and see things have worked 55 years they are doing something right.

“With regard to the government of Myanmar today. I think it's very straightforward. We're trying to solve the problem without talking with our friends in Europe realize that that's why we also need a war business from Germany from the EU. Let's talk to Russia. You need to find a solution. So the same can be said what we are doing here because we are trying to talk to them, trying to explain to them try to express our frustration, but at the same time also want to hear from them.

“what they think how they can do more so that we can make sure that implementation of performance 5PC is moving forward as fast as possible. Our goal is very simple and straightforward. We just want to end the complication as soon as possible, and making sure that all of the people who have been as happy with that. And that is the bottom line. They're not choosing this side or that side. That's not part of our job that I see it is not a decision to decide who is the most legitimate and that question should be decided by the people. And the 5 point consensus is only to help facilitate ones and to find ways for the Myanmar for people to get to that point to return to normalcy as soon as possible. And then we can welcome our friends to the assisted living again, we are having so many problems that are happening around the world. And I think it's very important for all of us to do it in a collective manner. unity and solidarity is meant to be a safe process".

He also shared Cambodia’s concerns over the tension in Taiwan Strait as the U.S. House Speaker H.E. Ms. Nancy Pelosi is expected to pay a visit to Taiwan.

“We are concerned by the growing tension in the Taiwan Strait. We don’t want to see that because the world is facing multiple crises. At the same time, we are still recovering from the pandemic and now there is also security situation in the region and outside the region, and the economic recession is also around the corner,” said H.E. Kung Phoak, also Secretary of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

“Cambodia’s position is very consistent, we respect the One China policy, and we hope that all parties would adhere to the principles and the key documents they have already agreed on,” he underlined.

H.E. Kung Phoak said what Cambodia wanted to see now is the de-escalation of the tension there, and Cambodia hoped that all sides will engage in a peaceful, constructive dialogue because we don’t think that the act of war or the use of violence or the escalation of tension will bring us closer to the solution of this crisis.
