Indonesia in talks to solve Myanmar coup crisis

Jakarta, Indonesia, Feb 24 – Indonesia said Wednesday it was in talks with both sides in Myanmar’s political crisis and its foreign minister may visit to help find a solution, but she had no plans for an immediate trip.

The statement came after a leaked Myanmar government document showed Indonesia’s foreign minister Retno Marsudi was to visit the coup-hit nation on Thursday.

The trip was not confirmed by Indonesia — a key diplomatic player among Southeast Asian nations — and it said Wednesday that no visit had been scheduled.

But it left open the possibility of a later trip by Marsudi, who was still expected to visit Myanmar for a special meeting of foreign ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

The timing of that meeting has yet to be announced.

“After taking into account current developments and following the observations of a number of ASEAN countries, this is not the ideal time to conduct a visit to Myanmar,” foreign ministry spokesman Teuku Faizasyah told reporters in Jakarta.

“(But) Indonesia is also committed to keep communicating with all parties in Myanmar.”

Faizasyah later told AFP: “We’re open to the visit as an option, but we have to carefully decide (its timing)”.

Marsudi, who is currently in Thailand, would have been the first foreign envoy to visit Myanmar since a February 1 military-led coup.

Myanmar authorities have ratcheted up their use of force against a massive and largely peaceful civil disobedience campaign for the return of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
