The UN Security Council has failed to agree on a statement aimed at pushing Myanmar’s junta to take steps toward a peaceful solution to the country’s ongoing crisis, diplomats said. China and the United Kingdom, which drafted the text, blamed each other for the failure of the day-long negotiations, which followed a closed-door Council meeting on Myanmar in the morning. For London, China was asking “too much,” which led to the collapse of the negotiations. The original text proposed that the Security Council express deep concern over “limited progress” in implementing a five-point plan on ending the crisis, which was set out more than a year ago by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean). It also called for action to implement the roadmap.
