Japan to forgo talks with Mekong Delta nations’ leaders 

Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ has decided to forgo a plan to host a leaders’ meeting with the five Mekong Delta countries—Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar—this month based on the assessment that it would be difficult to invite a representative of Myanmar’s junta to join the session. According to the paper, ASEAN has decided not to invite Myanmar military’s Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing to its online leaders’ meeting slated for the end of this month. An unnamed senior Foreign Ministry official was quoted as saying Japan would be criticized by the international community if it were to invite a military representative of Myanmar to the conference.
