Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa said Wednesday that he was not aware of a plan for arms procurement by Myanmar from Indonesia’s state-owned arms producer PT Pindad.

“I’m not aware of a plan by any particular entity to sell arms to Myanmar or any other country,” he told The Jakarta Post.

He also said that arms purchases and sales were a sensitive issue to discuss.

“There are standards and norms that must be respected and I’m sure it applies equally to our relationship with Myanmar,” Marty said. (swd)
