MALAYSIAN envoy to Myanmar’s meeting with a minister of the junta yesterday was to convey a decision of a Petronas subsidiary operating in the country to suspend operations temporarily, said Wisma Putra today.

The Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs added that the meeting was not to be construed as any form of recognition of the State Administration Council (SAC), which now runs Myanmar following a military coup on February 1 to replace the country’s democratically elected government.
