Mr. Hasan Wirayuda said Asean wanted to help Burma’s democratisation process, but was disappointed over lack of tangible results in the military-ruled country.
Asean almost ‘washed their hands off’ on Burma last year, but the policy was reviewed during the last summit in Cebu, and decided to continue to engage with Burma.
Mr.Wirayuda said Indonesia has proposed to send a three-member delegation — current Asean chair Philippines, the next chair Singapore and Indonesia which is non-permanent member of the Security Council — to Burma but its leaders have not responded to the proposal.
