Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono plans to travel to Burma next week for a two-day visit.
Presidential spokesman Dino Pati Jalal told reporters in Jakarta Thursday the president will meet with Burmese military government leader Than Shwe for talks that could include Burma's progress on its so-called "road map to democracy."
Burma has received international criticism for its crackdown on opposition parties and detention of political prisoners.
The nation's military leadership crushed a pro-democracy movement in 1988, and refused to recognize election results after a landslide victory by the opposition National League for Democracy in 1990.
Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has spent 10 of the last 16 years in detention, mostly under house arrest.
