Heyzer urged Southeast Asian countries to support international efforts to get all parties involved, a few days after a senior regional leader traveled there to meet with the head of the military junta.
The diplomat held virtual talks with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, current chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), said a statement released here Thursday.
According to the release, Heyzer sought a collaborative effort in humanitarian aid and seeking progress on the stalled five-point peace plan agreed between Asean and the de facto government last year.
He advocated confidence-building measures involving all parties interested, in addition to the ethnic armed organizations, the statement said.
Heyzer further urged Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sakhonn to work with her and the international community on “a coordinated strategy to create an environment favorable for inclusive talks.”
Myanmar has been living in chaos for 11 months, with clashes on city streets and armed clashes between government troops and ethnic minority armies and militias inside the country.
The conflict has caused discord within Asean over how to deal with Myanmar, with some wanting to marginalize that nation from regional meetings and others betting on rapprochement.
