Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son made that above statement during his meeting with United Nations Special Envoy on Myanmar Christine Schraner Burgener on April 24.

The UN Special Envoy expressed her concerns over loss of life in Myanmar, particularly women and children, expecting that ASEAN will take proactive measures to settle divergences and bring peace to Myanmar.

Minister Bui acknowledged efforts of the UN and Burgener in handling the situation in Myanmar, affirming Viet Nam shares deep concerns of the international community and the UN on the situation in Myanmar.

He underlined the importance of self-restraint, end of violence, humanitarian assistance and dialogue while ASEAN's centrality should be promoted in this process.

The Vietnamese diplomat expressed hope that the international community, the UN and Burgener will advocate the bloc's efforts in general and Viet Nam in particular in this issue./.
