Vice-Senior General Soe Win, second in command of the junta that seized power seven months ago, said that allowing a foreigner access to someone charged with crimes is against domestic law.

Win said in a speech published in state media that “the internal stability” was above all, in contrast to the growing international pressure to comply with a regional peace plan agreed in April.

At that time, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), of which Myanmar is a member, agreed to send Brunei’s deputy foreign minister to assess the situation there.

Last week, the ASEAN decided to exclude Junta Leader Min Aung Hlaing from its most recent Summit for not honoring the peace deal.

The Asian nation has been living in chaos since February, and according to a local watchdog group, more than 1,200 civilians have been killed by security forces.
