Thailand has rejected comments from Burma that Bangkok's proposed road map for political reconciliation in Burma represents interference in its affairs.
Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra says detained Burmese opposition leader Aung San Su Kyi should be released immediately as part of a process to launch democratic reforms.
Officials in Rangoon say they should be left alone to solve their own internal problems.
Mr. Thaksin spoke to U.N. Special Envoy to Burma, Razali Ismail, Monday about the road map and says the U.N. envoy encouraged him to go ahead with the initiative.
The Thai leader says Thailand will continue discussions with regional nations, seeking a way to resolve the deadlock in Burma that began after Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested on May 30th.
