A top Thai official says APEC leaders could discuss the detention of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi at next week's summit in Bangkok.
Thai Foreign Minister Surakiart Sathirathai made the comments Wednesday. The Associated Press quotes the foreign minister as saying Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation officials would discuss Aung San Suu Kyi's situation ahead President Bush's arrival at the summit.
On Tuesday, U.S. National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said President Bush will bring up the case of detained Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi during his upcoming trip to Asia.
She said the United States is in constant contact with United Nations officials about the welfare of Aung San Suu Kyi.
The Nobel Laureate was detained by Burma's military rulers last May. She remains under house arrest after a brief hospitalization.
