​Embassy officials explored the possibility of a one-on-one meeting with State Counsellor ​Aung San Suu Kyi during the ASEM Conference on 20-21 November 2017 but this was not possible. However, the Minister of State addressed her directly in his ASEM speeches, and held meetings with senior Burmese ministers, including the Minister of Defence U Sein Win, the State Counsellor's Chief of Staff U Kyaw Tin Swe and the Deputy Foreign Minister U Kyaw Tin.
