President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin have instructed their top diplomats to initiate a regional meeting to respond to the political crisis unraveling in Myanmar this week, as expectations mount on ASEAN to come up with a common position on the situation.
Jokowi hosted Muhyiddin, the third Malaysian leader he has worked with since assuming office in 2014, during the latter’s maiden visit to Jakarta on Friday.
The occasion was Muhyiddin’s first official visit abroad since becoming prime minister last year, shortly after the COVID-19 outbreak led to worldwide travel restrictions.
The visit was conducted under very strict health protocols and with a small entourage, with preparations led by Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi and her Malaysian counterpart Hishammuddin Hussein.
