THE Pyidaungsu Hluttaw approved Myanmar’s ratification of the Agreement on the Privileges and Immunities of the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN) yesterday.
In his supplementary report to the parliament, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs U Kyaw Tin said Myanmar will be recognised as a dutiful country in ASEAN by ratifying the agreement, which is expected to help Myanmar diplomats assigned to the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta discharge their duties effectively.
Following the proposal by President U Htin Kyaw to ratify the agreement, three parliamentarians expressed their support for ratification.
During the 26th day session of the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, bills to amend the Pyithu Hluttaw, Amyotha Hluttaw and Region/State Hluttaw election laws, which are deemed to have been passed by the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw, were documented.—Myanmar News Agency
