THE MEETING BY THE AMBASSADOR OF MALAYSIA TO MYANMAR

AT THE MINISTRY OF ELECTRICITY AND ENERGY OF THE REPUBLIC UNION OF MYANMAR

 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malaysia refers to media inquiries about the meeting of the Ambassador of Malaysia to Myanmar at the Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE) in Nay Pyi Taw on 7 April 2021.

 

The meeting was held to convey to the MOEE the decision of PETRONAS Carigali Myanmar (Hong Kong) Limited (PCML), a subsidiary of PETRONAS, to suspend temporarily the upstream operations of Yetagun gas project.

 

The meeting does not construe a recognition or otherwise of the State Administration Council (SAC).

 

Malaysia’s position on Myanmar is clear and consistent. We have persistently called for an immediate end to violence, unconditional and immediate release of political detainees, and resumption of an inclusive dialogue involving all concerned parties for a political transition and peaceful settlement of the ongoing crisis in the interest of Myanmar and her people.

 

We will continue our constructive engagements with all concerned parties towards this end.
