Asean Secretary General Surin Pitsuwan said Thursday that Asean leaders have been invited by U.S. President Barack Obama to meet in New York on September 24. Pitsuwan is attending a special meeting in Bangkok on disaster management. He said the summit will last 2 hours, 30 minutes more than the previous one held in Singapore last November.

The invitation, according to Pitsuwan, has been well received in Asean capitals. "So far, most of the Asean leaders are positive," he said. The Asean-US leaders' meeting has now become an annual event.

Thailand’s Prime Minister, Abhisit Vejjajiva, has confirmed that he would be in New York for the meeting. He is traveling extensively throughout the third week of September. He will visit Brussels, New York and Germany. He will also address the UN General Assembly. This weekend, he is on a brief visit to Shanghai, China.
