“We talked about democratisation in Myanmar [Burma], about development issues, about Aung San Suu Kyi, and we agreed that I will send my envoy to Myanmar in January.”

Burma eyes “One Asean, One vision”

The informal Asean summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was considered a success by Burma’s generals, who declared their support for the regional grouping’s vision of regional peace and stability.

The state-run press hailed the summit — the first attended by Rangoon since its controversial entry into the grouping in July — as “one of the most significant events in Asean’s 30-year history.”

It ended with a “resounding crescendo on the note ‘One Asean, One Vision’,” an editorial in The New Light of Myanmar said, referring to the Asean Vision 2020 document adopted by the summit.
