Burma Army Chief to Skip Regional Meeting This Month

Source: The China Post

Burma's army commander will not attend a meeting of the region's army chiefs later this month because he needs to monitor the ongoing crisis at home, senior Thai military officials said Monday.

Army commanders from the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations will gather in Thailand from Nov. 19-22.

Gen. Maung Aye, the Myanmar army chief, "has his own reason for not attending the meeting and it is not appropriate for me to reveal the reason," Thai army commander, Gen. Anupong Paojinda, told a news conference. He was expected to be represented by another high-ranking army official.
