Burmese Prime Minister Khin Nyunt has arrived in Thailand as part of a traditional introductory tour by new leaders of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Khin Nyunt is scheduled to meet with his Thai counterpart, Thaksin Shinawatra, during the one-day visit in Bangkok.
The trip comes amid international criticism that Burma's national constitutional convention called by the ruling military has sidelined the democratic opposition, whose leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been under house arrest for more than a year.
On Tuesday, Khin Nyunt visited Malaysia where Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi told him the best way for democracy to develop in Burma is for all parties to be involved in the constitutional convention.
