UN General Assembly mulling resolution on Myanmar: diplomats
Leaders and foreign ministers from the 10-country Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are set to hold talks in Jakarta on the mounting crisis on Saturday.
The sponsors of the text are waiting for the meeting to finish so they can "see how it goes" before committing to a vote, said a diplomat speaking on condition of anonymity.
The Myanmar military has stepped up the use of lethal force as it seeks to quell mass protests against the junta, with an estimated 250,000 people now displaced.
It also urges the junta immediately to release Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and others who were arrested.
The text does not explicitly condemn the coup, however.
Several NGOs want an arms embargo imposed on the junta, and the draft seeks "an immediate suspension of the direct and indirect supply, sale, or transfer of all weapons, munitions, and other military-related equipment to Myanmar."
The council has yet to call for any powerful action like sanctions or an arms embargo.
