Indonesian President Megawati Sukarnoputri says Burma should clarify its plans regarding pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi ahead of next month's regional summit.
The Jakarta Post newspaper quotes Ms. Megawati as saying Rangoon should specifically state whether it plans to keep Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest or free her immediately. The Indonesian leader made her comments during a state visit to the African nation of Libya.
Indonesia has been trying to persuade Burma to release the pro-democracy leader, who has spent much of the last 15 years under house arrest.
President Megawati said Burma's rulers should make their position clear before leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations hold their summit in Bali.
Both Indonesia and Burma are members of ASEAN, along with Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
