PREY VENG: Prime Minister Hun Sen has announced on Monday that he will meet the Foreign Minister of Myanmar on Tuesday. Myanmar’s Foreign Minister Wunna Maung Lwin is scheduled to visit the Kingdom of Cambodia as announced by the Prime Minister. He hopes that their meeting will achieve a fruitful result.

The Prime Minister made the announcement during the inauguration ceremony of the National Road No. 11 in Prey Veng province. He has also announced the possibility of him visiting the capital of Myanmar, Nay Pyi Taw is high.

Prime Minister Hun Sen says, "If we do not work with the authorities in Myanmar, who do we have to work with?" He has added, “We do not go far beyond the principles and Charter of ASEAN, but we cannot apply the United Nations' formula in ASEAN”.

The Prime Minister continued that the ASEAN has no right to expel any member and that ASEAN’s decision is made in the spirit of consensus.

Prime Minister Hun Sen has recalled that at a summit in 2007 in Cebu, Philippines, Cambodia led the discussion and also had the support from Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam regarding a point about the ASEAN's decision to expel any ASEAN member if it committed a serious mistake.

He says, "On the occasion, I raised some questions: who is the judge of the serious mistake case? What is the serious mistake of dismissal? At that time, no leader answered, so to maintain the ASEAN's solidarity and prosperity, consensus is the priority”.
