ASEM Meeting:
Indonesian leader suggests Asean meet in Bejing on crisis

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said on Thursday that Southeast Asian nations should hold a summit in Beijing next week to discuss measures to deal with the global financial crisis, reported Reuters.

Asian and European leaders are due to meet in the Chinese capital for the Asia-Europe summit (ASEM) on October 24-25, where talks are expected to focus on the crisis.

Yudhoyono told reporters he had written to Asean leaders with his proposal in a letter sent via the Thai prime minister, since Bangkok currently holds the rotating chair of the ten-member Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean). The Indonesian leader also said that Asean dialogue partners China, South Korea and Japan could also be included in the meeting.
