  ASEAN ministers mull censuring Myanmar for hindering envoy KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Southeast Asia’s top diplomats will discuss in an emergency meeting Friday whether to allow Myanmar's military leader to attend an annual summit after a crisis envoy was barred from meeting ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations had appointed Brunei Second Foreign Minister Erywan Yusof in August as its special envoy to mediate an end to the Myanmar crisis. However, he abruptly canceled his trip to the violence-wracked nation this week after being informed by his hosts that he would not be able to meet Suu Kyi and others as he wanted.

(Reuters) - the military junta in power in Burma did not prevent the special envoy from the Association of South Nations -Et Asian (ASEAN) to visit the country, but it will not be possible to meet Aung San Suu Kyi because she faces accusations of crimes, said a spokesman for the junta.

The delay in the UN approval of the appointment of the Burmese Military Government Ambassador to the United Nations is motivated by political reasons, the spokesman of the Junte, ZAW Min Tun.

He added that the UN and other countries and organizations "should avoid applying two weights when engaging in international affairs".

These remarks, published in a statement dated Wednesday, intervene as international pressure increases on the junta to implement a five-point plan agreed in April with ASEAN.

Burma is prey to disorders and is in an economic and political impasse since the military coup of February 1st.
