US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman has said her country would continue to work closely with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and other partners in pressing for a just and peaceful resolution to the crisis in Myanmar.
Many Southeast Asian leaders are now in Washington for the US-ASEAN Special Summit.
Sherman Thursday held a meeting with representatives of Myanmar's National Unity Government (NUG), an administration set up by opponents of the February 1 military coup that plunged the country into chaos.
She met the NUG representatives, including Zin Mar Aung, in Washington.
Sherman underscored robust US support for the people of Myanmar in the face of the regime's brutal crackdown and pledged to continue providing support to all those working peacefully towards the restoration of Myanmar's path to inclusive democracy.
The deputy secretary thanked Zin Mar for her courage and dedication to the people of Myanmar and offered US support for an inclusive, peaceful, and prosperous democracy for all.
