    Security at Kuala Lumpur airport was tight when the Australian leader flew in with Mr Lee from Singapore.



    On hand to greet them was the Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Hussein Onn.



    The tripartite summit, arranged at the request of Mr Fraser, took place in an informal atmosphere over lunch at Datuk Hussein's official residence.



    Mr Fraser told the two Asian leaders that the Australian Immigration Minister Michael MacKeller will visit South East Asia soon to see about taking additional Indochinese refugees into Australia.



    Australia has already taken more than 2,000 refugees from Malaysia and has promised to take more. (SEQ 1-8)



    Informed sources said Mr Fraser also discussed the results of his top-level discussions with leaders and economic officials of the European Economic Community on trade and the common fund to stabilise prices of primary commodities.



    Malaysia, as the world's leading exporter of rubber, timber, tin, and palm oil has been advocating the setting up of the fund with the participating of the consumer countries in Europe and America to secure Fair export prices.



    Speaking at a press conference after his meeting, Mr Fraser talked about the confidence being expressed in ASEAN by the industrialised countries: (SEQ 9-10)



    FRASER: "At the outset I'd like to say that I believe that both ASEAN and the Austral-Asian region are looked upon by countries overseas as favoured ones for investment where there has been a great deal of stability and economic growth and development, political and constitutional stability in a way which makes ASEAN and the Austral-Asian area one that's attractive for investment and therefore attractive for projects and that assists us in our own efforts to advance out nations in providing employment."
