Thailand's foreign ministry has agreed to postpone international talks on the political future of neighboring Burma.
Two days of talks were scheduled to start next Thursday in Bangkok.
A Thai foreign ministry spokesman says Burma asked for a delay because it is pre-occupied with its upcoming constitutional convention.
Burma's military government plans to oversee the writing of a new constitution as part of its self-declared "road map to democracy."
Thailand, which has urged the military government to embrace democratic reforms, organized the first round of international talks on Burma last year.
The foreign ministry spokesman says Thai officials are searching for a suitable date when more talks can be held.
