Burma's neighbors continue to urge the military government in Rangoon to free detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Indonesia's Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda told a meeting of parliament in Jakarta Tuesday that Burma's ruling military council should free Aung San Suu Kyi without delay.
He said the issue should be resolved before Southeast Asian leaders meet for their annual summit October seventh on the island of Bali.
Burma's government said Tuesday it is too soon to provide a time frame for implementing a so-called road map to democracy. Labor Minister Tin Win said Rangoon is committed to turning Burma into a nation where genuine and disciplined democracy prevails.
He did not mention the the Nobel Peace Prize-winning opposition leader who has been under detention since the end of May.
Indonesia is the current chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. In July, it said Burma had pledged to resolve the current impasse over Aung San Suu Kyi before the Bali summit.
