Phnom Penh, MINA – President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo expressed his disappointment over the lack of significant progress in the implementation of the 5-point consensus (5PC) by the Myanmar military junta.

“We do not see any commitment from the military junta to implement it,” said President Jokowi in his statement to the media crew on the sidelines of the ASEAN Cambodia Summit, Friday (11/11).

According to him, the situation in Myanmar should not interfere with ASEAN’s journey and cooperation.

“Indonesia reaffirms its position not to allow non-political representation at the ASEAN Summit and foreign ministerial level meetings. Indonesia also proposes that the same thing be implemented outside the foreign ministerial level meeting,” Jokowi said.
