dpa/GNA – South-East Asian foreign ministers will hold a special online meeting on Tuesday to discuss the political crisis in Myanmar after last month’s military coup, Indonesia’s Foreign Ministry said Monday.

The planned meeting by top diplomats from the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) will come after at least 18 people were killed in a military crackdown by Myanmar’s military against anti-coup protesters on Sunday.

“(Indonesian) Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi will attend the virtual meeting,” ministry spokesman Teuku Faizasyah said. He did not provide further details.

Retno has been touring ASEAN member countries in an effort of shuttle diplomacy to forge a common regional stance on the coup.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
