In an announcement in state media, the junta said it upholds the principle of peaceful coexistence with other countries and would cooperate with the five-item consensus agreed in April with the regional bloc.

The decision comes after ASEAN foreign ministers decided to veto Min Aung Hlaing, leader of a February 1 coup, from their upcoming Summit.

The junta initially counterattacked and accused the ASEAN of departing from its principles of consensus and non-interference, but now apparently cedes to the strong international pressure.

According to activists, more than 1,000 civilians have been killed in a post-coup crackdown in Myanmar, and thousands more were detained, many tortured or beaten.
