KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Malaysia asked the United Nations Thursday to adequately

process there, the national news agency Bernama reported.

In Indonesia, Foreign Minister Ali Alatas also expressed concern about the Khmer

Rouge decision, but said he did not believe they had completely abandoned the peace

agreement.
