Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has arrived in Burma for a state visit, the final leg of his three country tour of east Asia.
Presidential spokesman Dino Pati Jalal has said Mr. Yudhoyono will meet with Burmese leader Than Shwe for talks that could include Burma's progress on what it calls its "road map to democracy."
There were no plans for the Indonesian leader to meet with detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
In December, the 10 member Association of Southeast Asian Nations publicly called on the Burmese leadership to free all political prisoners and quicken steps toward democracy.
The nation's military leadership crushed a pro-democracy movement in 1988, and refused to recognize election results after a landslide victory by the opposition National League for Democracy in 1990.
