• ASEAN To Discuss Barring Myanmar Junta From Upcoming Summit

Southeast Asian nations will hold a virtual meeting of their foreign ministers today to discuss whether to exclude Myanmar from the ASEAN regional bloc.

The BBC's Jonathan Head has the details.

They've got the biggest summit meeting of the year coming up at the end of this month.

It's one where not only the heads of government of the 10 Southeast Asian countries attend, but also major powers like the United States, Japan, the EU, Australia, China, they also send their heads of government.

And the great concern is what do we do about Myanmar?

Myanmar is a member of ASEAN and it would mean, technically, inviting the junta leader.

Some ASEAN countries, notably Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, are arguing that the refusal of the junta leader to go along with the quite mild proposals made back in April to de-escalate the violence, means they must suspend Myanmar's membership.
