ASEAN to hold a special high-level online meeting

(VOVWORLD) - ASEAN leaders have agreed to meet and discuss community building efforts, foreign relations and regional issues, including the situation in Myanmar. 

Myanmar military leader Senior General Min Aung Hlaing is expected to attend the meeting. Senior ASEAN officials held a meeting last week to decide on the date and venue of the summit, with the initiative promoted by host country Indonesia and Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi for weeks. There were suggestions that because of Covid-19 pandemic, the ASEAN leaders should meet virtually.
