Burmese Prime Minister Khin Nyunt plans to travel to Vietnam and Cambodia next week for talks with his Vietnamese and Cambodian counterparts.
Details of the talks have not been released, but the meetings are expected to focus on whether Burma will participate in the October Asia-Europe Meeting.
The European Union says it opposes Burma's presence because of its poor human rights record. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations says Burma should be allowed to participate as an ASEAN member.
ASEAN says it wants all three of its newest members -- Burma, Laos and Cambodia -- to be part of the Asia-Europe meeting.
