The plight of Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi will be among the issues discussed during the first meeting between ASEAN and the United States leaders on Nov. 15 in Singapore.
The meeting between US and ten ASEAN members is being held to follow up the signing of the group’s security treaty by Washington in July, the foreign ministry said Monday.
The United States signed the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation, which pledged peaceful settlement of disputes and noninterference in domestic affairs.
The foreign ministry said the meeting would also discuss implementation of the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) between ASEAN and the United States.
