    New York: United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on Monday for leaders in Asia to bolster efforts towards finding a peaceful solution to the bloody crisis in Myanmar, sparked by the military coup in February. 

    Speaking during a UN Security Council meeting on cooperation between the UN and regional and sub-regional organizations, he highlighted the relationship with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), underlining the bloc’s important role in diplomacy, conflict prevention and peacebuilding. 






    "Today, ASEAN’s role is more crucial than ever as the region faces an urgent crisis in Myanmar," Guterres said.  

    "I have repeatedly called on the international community to work, collectively and through bilateral channels, to help bring an end to the violence and the repression by the military," he added.

    In this regard, UN cooperation with ASEAN is vital, the Secretary-General said, as the situation requires a robust international response grounded in a unified regional effort.    

    "I urge regional actors to leverage their influence to prevent further deterioration and, ultimately, find a peaceful way out of this catastrophe," he stated.
