Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has met with Burma's military leaders, amid controversy over whether Burma should be allowed to assume the chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Mr. Lee and his foreign minister George Yeo held discussions with the head of state, Senior General Than Shwe, and prime minister, Lieutenant General Soe Win, on Wednesday.
Few details about the talks were available. But the trip is taking place as criticism mounts within southeast Asia over the slow pace of democratic reforms in Burma.
Lawmakers in Malaysia and the Philippines are considering resolutions that would deny Burma its scheduled chairmanship of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 2006.
Mr. Lee visited Laos on Tuesday. He travels Thursday to Cambodia.
