Burma could face Asean expulsion
Mahathir is really pungent here.

Burma could face Asean expulsion
The Malaysian prime minister says
Burma could face expulsion from
the Asean group of nations if its
government continues to ignore
calls to free the jailed opposition
leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

"We have already informed them that
we are very disappointed with the
turn of events and we hope that Aung
San Suu Kyi will be released as soon
as possible," Dr Mahathir said.

He said that ultimately Burma could
be expelled from Asean though he stressed this would be done as a last
resort.

It was Dr Mahathir who spearheaded moves to bring Burma into Asean -
the Association of South East Asian Nations - in 1997.
