Indonesia has called on Burma to allow a special envoy to visit the country to check on its progress with democratic reform. A spokesman with Indonesia's foreign ministry made the request today-Friday in Jakarta.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations appointed Malaysian Foreign Minister Hamid Albar last year as a special envoy to visit Burma. Burma, which is a member of the group, agreed to the visit.
But it was postponed after Burma's military leaders did not set a date for the trip, which was originally was scheduled for January.
Western nations have accused the group of failing to exert enough pressure on Burma's military to correct its human rights violations and restore civilian rule.
