Singapore's Foreign Ministry confirmed Wednesday that all Southeast Asian nations' foreign ministers will meet in Singapore next Monday to discuss help for cyclone-hit Myanmar.

"At the meeting, the ministers will discuss the humanitarian situation in Myanmar and consider how best to assist Myanmar in its relief and recovery efforts," said the statement by the Foreign Ministry.

Singapore, the current chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), offered last Friday to host a special meeting of ASEAN foreign ministers to discuss how the regional grouping can help Myanmar in its relief and recovery efforts.

The grouping, which has a long-standing policy of not interfering in the internal affairs of member states, is facing the blame that it was moving too slow to offer relief help to member Myanmar.

Members Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines were quick with their individual dispatches of relief supplies and monetary aid in the first days after the disaster.
