BANGKOK -- The European Union (EU) has agreed to a request from
Thailand that Myanmar be
allowed to join an Asean-EU joint co-operation meeting next month,
the Thai foreign ministry said
yesterday. The EU, which has imposed sanctions on Myanmar, was
persuaded by Thailand to let
representatives attend the November meeting in Bangkok, despite the
EU's initial objections.
However, Myanmar and Laos will only attend as observers, the Thai
ministry said in a statement.
