From May 12th to 13th, the United States and (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) ASEAN held a special summit in Washington, D.C., refusing to invite Myanmar’s military leader Min Leong to participate. At the same time, the United States and ASEAN agreed to use an empty chair to represent Myanmar’s overthrown civilian government at the summit venue.

During the summit, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Sherman also held a meeting with the Foreign Minister of Myanmar’s National Unity Government in Washington. The Myanmar National Unity Government is listed as a “terrorist organization” by the Myanmar military. The Burmese military criticized the United States for not inviting its leaders to the ASEAN summit in the United States but instead met with the Government of National Unity representatives. At the same time, the Burmese military highly praised the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for its support of the Burmese army.

Recently, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that no matter how the situation changes, the CCP will support Myanmar in safeguarding its sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity to express its support for the Myanmar military.
