No value in engaging Myanmar generals unless progress made - Singapore

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Further engagement with Myanmar's military rulers will be of limited value unless progress is demonstrated in implementing an agreed peace plan, Singapore's foreign ministry said on Wednesday, summarising discussions at a regional meeting.

Ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) noted recent executions by the junta were a grave setback for ASEAN's peace process and disrespected the special envoy's efforts to find a solution to the conflict, the ministry said in a statement.
