Singapore: The Singapore government has come out publicly to urge Myanmar to make more determined and visible progress on its roadmap to democracy. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who met Myanmar’s Prime Minister Soe Win
on the sidelines of the ASEAN summit in Laos, expressed his concern at the situation in Myanmar.
Mr Lee’s press secretary said Mr Lee expressed his concern as the situation in Myanmar affected ASEAN’s standing and credibility.
Such concerns are usually expressed behind closed doors at ASEAN meetings.
Mr Lee also had a call with the Prime Minister of Laos, Bounnhang Vorachith, before ASEAN leaders attended an informal working dinner.
