Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has wrapped up a visit to Burma, where he signed a memorandum of understanding to improve ties between the two nations.
Mr. Yudhoyono met with Burmese leader Than Shwe and other military officials during his visit, which was the final leg of a three-country tour of Southeast Asia.
It is not clear what was discussed during the meeting, but the Reuters news agency quotes former Indonesian Foreign Minister Ali Alatas as saying that Mr. Yudhoyono offered to help the Burmese leader bring about democratic reforms.
Earlier, an Indonesian presidential spokesman Dino Pati Jalal had said the two leaders were to discuss Burma's progress on what it calls its "road map to democracy."
In December, the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations publicly called on the Burmese leadership to free all political prisoners and quicken steps toward democracy.
