                 Ryutaro urged Asean NOT to allow SLORC into the Group

    Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto urged the Association of 
Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) on Friday not to allow Myanmar to use its 
entry into the regional grouping as early as this year to hide political 
oppression there, Japanese officials said.
     Hashimoto, who is on the third leg of a Southeast Asian swing, filed 
the plea in a 90-minute meeting with President Suharto of Indonesia, a 
key member of the seven-nation forum.
