Thai officials say the prime ministers of Burma, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia will meet next month in Burma for talks on economic cooperation.
The three days of talks, which begin November 10th, will take place in the central Burmese city of Bagan. Thailand says the conference will focus on economic cooperation between Bangkok and its neighbors.
Thai officials say Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra hopes to hold a one-on-one meeting with his Burmese counterpart, General Khin Nyunt, on the sidelines of the talks. Such a meeting is expected to focus on urging Burma's military government to explain its so-called "road map" to democracy.
