    Background: Thai Prime Minister Prem Tinsulanonda and the Philippines president Ferdinand Marcos agreed to suggest a summit meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to solve the problem of the Kampuchean conflict.

    Gen Prem arrived in Manila on Thursday (15 May) on a two-day official visit at the end of his first tour of ASEAN member countries.

    Gen prem, accompanied by his Foreign Minister Air Chief Marshal Siddhi Savetsila, was welcomed by Mr. and Mrs. marcos at the manila International airport, and card by hundreds of school children dancing in colourful Filipino costumes.

    The two leader, after the inspection of military honour guards, sped to the Presidential Palace for a round of talks on Kampuchea and the ASEAN-sponsored UN resolution calling for the withdrawal of Vietnamese forces.

    Kampuchea, where Vietnamese troops move in during late 1978 to help overthrow the Peking-backed Khmer rouge Government which is still recognized by ASEAN, dominated the talks between two leaders.

    Gen Prem said that he and Mr. Marcos "share the opinion the time is perhaps right for a summit of the ASEAN countries so that they may exchange views "on the Kampuchean questions.

    He said they had agreed to consult the other members of ASEAN - Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia - on the prospects for such a summit.
