Myanmar is planning to host ASEAN related meetings next year in various cities while serving as chair of the ASEAN bloc of nations in 2014, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“Mainly, we have to hold the political meetings in Naypyitaw. We will also organise related meetings in Yangon, Mandalay, Taunggyi, Pyi Oo Lwin as well as Chaungtha and Bagan,” said Aung Htoo, in charge of ASEAN Affairs at the ministry on November 22.

Myanmar took over the ASEAN Chairmanship from Brunei at the 23rd ASEAN Summit in October and it will be hosting the ASEAN Summit and its related meetings in 2014.

President Thein Sein made a speech at the 23rd ASEAN Summit on October 9 of this year saying that Myanmar will implement the seven objectives including human rights as a first priority while taking part the ASEAN Chair.

Myanmar had entered into the ASEAN bloc of nations in 1997 and is hosting the 24th ASEAN Summit for the first time in 17 years.
