The article reports that the fifth Asia-Europe Meeting Summit (AEMS), held at the beginning of October, was predictably overshadowed by sharp disagreements between the two sides over how best to persuade Myanmar to introduce more democracy into the country. The summit, which is held every two years, took place in Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, on October 8 and 9. At the Hanoi summit, the 25 members of the EU met with countries from the Association of South East Asian Nations(South East Asian Nations) (ASEAN) along with China, South Korea and Japan.
