ASEAN-China summit held without Myanmar, Malaysia says

A summit between China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) was held without a representative from Myanmar, Malaysia's Foreign Minister Saifuddin Abdullah said on Monday.

As of Sunday, ASEAN countries excluding Myanmar had agreed with China that Mynamar's envoy to Beijing would attend, Saifuddin said. Myanmar authorities had no immediate comment on the no-show and a spokesman could not immediately be reached.
