Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra will pay a visit to Burma next month for talks on building cooperation in the war against drugs.
Mr. Thaksin told reporters today (Friday) he will meet leaders of Burma's ruling military on February 10th and 11th. He said he would also discuss a wide range of topics including border problems and tourism.
Burma's military has repeatedly denied allegations that it is involved in the drug trade, which Thailand, as well as the United States say is controlled by ethnic armies allied to Rangoon.
