Malaysia's foreign minister says a date has been set for his landmark visit to Burma, after a planned trip in January was canceled.
Malaysia's official news agency reports Syed Hamid Albar Saturday did not disclose when he will travel to Burma.
But last Wednesday he said he would would like to visit soon so he can report on the nation's democratic reforms at a regional ministerial meeting in Bali, Indonesia in April.
Under pressure from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Burma has agreed to allow a Malaysian delegation to monitor its democratic "road map." But the junta canceled a previously planned visit.
Burma'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.
