In April, ASEAN brokered a five-point plan at a special leaders’ summit, which Min Aung Hlaing attended, that included pledges to end violence and allow an ASEAN envoy to start a dialog with “all parties,” including ousted lawmakers.

Myanmar has not followed through, saying it has its own “road map” to new elections.
Myanmar's junta chief could still make an appearance at the summit.

Myanmar is China’s coordinating country for ASEAN this year, meaning it helps facilitate its interactions with the bloc.

“Typically, the coordinating member will set up everything, such as the virtual links and so on,” said one source. Myanmar, the source added, may use this role to “slot in” Min Aung Hlaing, even if other ASEAN countries objected.
