In Brief: govt 'may' attend postponed summit

A Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman said Thursday that Cambodian officials would "need to check their schedules" before committing to attend the upcoming ASEAN summit in Thailand, which has been pushed back for a third time and will likely be set for October. Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva announced on Wednesday that the summit - scheduled for June 13 and 14 on the southern tourist island of Phuket - would need to be rescheduled so all leaders would be able to attend. The summit will bring together leaders from the 10 ASEAN countries and six regional partners. Koy Kuong, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, said he expected the summit would be held in October, but that he had not received proposals for any specific dates.
