We, the 505 undersigned Myanmar, regional and international civil society organizations, call on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to cease inviting all political and non-political representatives of the Myanmar military junta to all summits and meetings, and revise the mandate of the Special Envoy to Myanmar.

We further call on ASEAN under the Indonesian Chairship, as a regional bloc and as individual states, to move beyond the failed Five-Point Consensus (5PC), enable effective humanitarian assistance, and publicly recognize the National Unity Government.
