  • Description

    In South-East Asia, government leaders often adjourn to the golf course when they want to discuss mutual problems confronting their countries.

    In Kuala Lumpur yesterday (Sunday), the Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Abdul Razak, and Thailand's special representative, former Foreign Minister Thanat Khoman, played a round of golf as they discussed the question of the neutralisation of South -East Asia.

    Both have been attending the five-nation conference of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). But the Foreign Ministers of the other three members - Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia - had to cancel the golfing date to return home.

    Last week the ASEAN ministers signed a declaration of intent to seek recognition of South-East Asia by the big powers as a zone of peace, freedom and neutrality.

    But the declaration fell short of an expected unilateral announcement that the five countries intended in future to regard themselves as a neutral zone.
