Ramos To Visit Burma on Oct 17-18

MANILA, Oct 1 (Reuter) - Philippine President Fidel Ramos will visit Burma
this month for talks with its military rulers, the first leader from the
Association of South East Nations to visit Rangoon since its entry into ASEAN
as a new member. 

Ramos's scheduled October 16-17 visit will be sandwiched between visits to
Hong Kong on October 13 to 16, and Laos on October 17-18, Foreign Office
