KUALA LUMPUR -- Asian countries have continued to call on Myanmar to take immediate action to resolve the Rohingya refugee crisis. 

Their demand came after Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi's speech on Tuesday, in which she promised to re-admit tens of thousands of the Muslim minority Rohingya who had fled the ethnic violence in Rakhine state in recent weeks. But Myanmar's neighbors clearly felt that Suu Kyi's speech did not go far enough.
