Burma's Prime Minister Visits Cambodia


Burma's Prime Minister, Soe Win, and his Cambodian counterpart, Hun Sen, have concluded talks in Phnom Penh without raising the issue of Rangoon's role in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

Soe Win's visit to Cambodia on Friday comes amid debate over Burma assuming the rotating chairmanship of ASEAN in 2006. The foreign ministers of Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore have urged Burma to implement democratic reforms or risk losing its turn at the ASEAN chairmanship.

Hun Sen said last month that attempting to block Burma from the chair would violate ASEAN's policy of non-interference and set a dangerous precedent.

The United States and the European Union have threatened to boycott further ASEAN meetings if Burma takes the chair before enacting political reforms
