  • Description

    The President of Burma, General Ne Win, arrived in Kuala Lumpur yesterday (Friday) for a four-day informal visit to Malaysia on his way to Australia.

    He was met at the airport by the Yang di Pertuan Agong (King), Prime Minister Tun Abual Razak and other high-ranking governemnt officials and diplomats.

    After a 30-minute stop-over, resident to ??? flew directly with Tun Razak to the Holiday resort island of pensng for talks and a few rounds of golf.

    Although no agenda was released for the talks, the two leaders are expected to concentrate on regional and bilateral issues. One key issue could be the way Malaysia conducts its newly established diplomatic relations with Peking. Burma has bad ties with China for more than 30 years.

    A government spokesman indicated another topic for discussion was Burma's role in the plan Tun Razak has for creating a zone of peace, freedom and neutrality in South Bast Asia -- a zone free from big-power influence.

    President No Win will leave Malaysia for Australia next Monday.
