Myanmar's ruling junta has rejected a request for a visit between a Southeast Asian envoy and deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The junta said on Wednesday a visit between a foreign envoy and someone who is charged with crimes was not warranted by any country.

"I believe no country will allow anyone to do beyond the existing law like this," said Vice-Senior General Soe Win, the second in command of the military.
Soe Win denied Myanmar's non-compliance with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and said an April agreement with ASEAN had been contingent on it considering Myanmar's "current internal affairs," and the decision about the envoy's access to the former leader had been "based on internal stability."
The junta's decision came despite mounting international pressure on the ruling military leaders of Myanmar to release Suu Kyi, who remains under house arrest pending trial.
