(March 24, 2021) Thailand must be a friend to Myanmar people

Ten years ago, when Myanmar's then-ruling junta initiated a series of reforms to open the country up after decades of military rule, was also the time I was Thailand's foreign minister. I remember well how myself and other Asean foreign envoys met regularly with our Myanmar counterpart ahead of Myanmar's 2010 general election -- a heavily flawed vote, but one that would pave the way for some form of democracy in the country.

These meetings were typically informal, taking place over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, but were important in assisting the Myanmar government in keeping to its plan of moving beyond its isolationist rule, and being accepted into the international fold. Through these meetings, Asean in many ways became the midwife in Myanmar's reform process.
