 'No decision yet' on joint war games with Myanmar

 KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is unable to determine at this pointwhen it will
hold a joint military exercise with Myanmar, Defence Minister Datuk Seri
Syed Hamid Albar said yesterday. 

 Such exercises were normal among Asean countries but it had not been
decided when to hold the joint war games with Myanmar because it had just
joined the grouping, he told reporters after launching the "Islamic
Excellence Week" organised by Universiti Malaya. 

 "Let everyone feel comfortable first, it has joined Asean and time and
opportunity should be given . . ." he said when asked whether any timeframe
had been set for conducting joint military manoeuvres. -- Bernama
