Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, 2022 chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, met with Myanmar military junta chief Sr. Gen. Min Aung Hlaing and vowed to fulfill an ASEAN agreement aimed at resolving Myanmar's year-old political crisis. Many observers questioned the Cambodian strongman's qualifications to lead outside efforts to resolve tension sparked by Min Aung Hlaing's coup in Myanmar, noting that Hun Sen's 36-year-rule in Phnom Penh has been marked by an armed revolt against elected coalition partners in the 1990s and the systematic destruction of Cambodia's opposition since 2017.
