MFA Spokesperson's Comments in Response to Media Queries on the Emergency ASEAN Foreign Ministers' Meeting on 15 October 2021

16 October 2021


In response to media queries, the MFA Spokesperson said:


Singapore supports the decision reached by the Emergency ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (EAMM) on 15 October 2021 to invite a non-political representative from Myanmar to attend the 38th and 39th ASEAN Summits and Related Summits from 26 to 28 October 2021.  This was a difficult but necessary decision to uphold ASEAN’s credibility given the unsatisfactory and highly limited progress in the implementation of the ASEAN Leaders’ Five-Point Consensus.


  Singapore commends the efforts by Brunei Minister of Foreign Affairs II Dato Erywan Yusof as the ASEAN Chair’s Special Envoy on Myanmar and reiterates its full support for the Special Envoy’s mission and Brunei’s ASEAN Chairmanship.  Singapore urges the Myanmar military authorities to cooperate with the Special Envoy to swiftly and fully implement the Five-Point Consensus.
