Indonesia says they are trying to speed up peace in Myanmar.

Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi, who is the rotating chairman of ASEAN, said on Friday that they are trying to speed up the implementation of the five-point common agreement on Myanmar.

She held 11 personal meetings with both the NUG - National Unity Government and the Military Council in order to implement those agreements. She said that communication and discussions were carried out through telephones.

Indonesia's statement came at a time when Burma-related organizations are talking about abandoning the five agreements because they have no benefit.

Meanwhile, representatives of a civil society network named Burmese Spring Revolutionaries visited the ASEAN Special Representative's Office opened by the Indonesian government last Monday and said that ASEAN's efforts have not been effective at all.

Bener News, RFA's sub news agency, reported that the continued implementation of the five-point agreement by ASEAN would only encourage the coup army to continue committing atrocities against the Burmese people.
