At the meeting, Prayut Chan-Ochaand Noeleen Heizeralso discussed the stalled ASEAN plan to resolve the situation in Myanmar, codenamed "5 points". As the Russian embassy in the republic told the TASS news agency, an unstable internal political situation persists in some regions of the country, military operations are being carried out with armed ethnic groups and opposition forces. At the beginning of last year, the Myanmar military removed the leadership of the country and declared a state of emergency in the country until February 1, 2022.
