Burma's Leader to Attend Asian-African Summit


Burma's junta leader General Than Shwe will attend the 50th anniversary of the Asian-African Summit in Indonesia.

The formation of the international grouping in 1955 led to the establishment of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Burma's state-run newspapers reported Monday that Than Shwe will attend the two-day conference in Bandung near Jakarta from Friday at the invitation of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

The summit is expected to include leaders from 81 countries in Africa and Asia.

Burma's record on human rights and the suppression of democratic forces has come under sharp attack by Western and even some Asian nations. But the military-ruled country is unlikely to come under criticism during the summit.
