Thailand is concerned at the violence in many parts of Myanmar and wants to see the implementation of steps agreed by Southeast Asian leaders with the military junta to help end the turmoil since the Feb. 1 coup, the foreign ministry said on Sunday.

Myanmar’s junta has shown little sign of heeding the five point ‘consensus’ agreed among the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) in April – which calls for an end to violence, political talks and the naming of a regional special envoy.
