Burma's prime minister has arrived in Cambodia as part of a tour through Southeast Asia, amid debate over Rangoon's role in ASEAN. Soe Win was greeted at Phnom Penh's international airport Friday by his counterpart Prime Minister Hun Sen.
During his two-day visit, Soe Win will hold talks with Hun Sen during which Cambodia is expected to give the junta backing for taking the rotating chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in 2006.
Hun Sen said last month attempting to block Burma from the chair would violate ASEAN's policy of non-interference and set a dangerous precedent.
The United States and the European Union have threatened to boycott further ASEAN meetings if Burma takes the chair before enacting political reforms.
