Run applescript app from uxp PS plugin?

Is it possible to execute an applescript app from a uxp plugin?
I was able to do this in Extendscript with the following code. I have searched the topic but not finding a solution.

var desc = new ActionDescriptor();
      desc.putString(0, 'processingScript');
      app.putCustomOptions('PStoASMessage', desc, false);
      var myApp = new File('~/Desktop/myApplescript.app');
      myApp.execute();
