HANOI -- Cambodia plans to host foreign ministers from Association of Southeast Asian Nations members on Feb. 16-17, the country's Foreign Ministry said Saturday, after a meeting scheduled for January was postponed amid disagreement over Myanmar.

The meeting, an important part of ASEAN's regular annual diplomatic schedule, was supposed to be held Jan. 18-19 in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The country now holds the association's rotating chairmanship.
