SINGAPORE (AP) — Southeast Asian leaders are expected to discuss economic cooperation and Myanmar's refugee crisis at a summit in Singapore.

Analysts say they will be taking cues from Friday's landmark meeting between North Korea's Kim Jong Un and South Korea's Moon Jae-In.

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, a 10-member bloc, has long campaigned for dialogue and peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Foreign ministers met in Singapore on Friday to affirm a common vision amid happenings within and beyond the group.

Analysts say the Korean talks are a positive development for the region, where countries are wary of the North's nuclear program but continue to hosts its embassies and welcome its presence at a regional forum.

The 32nd ASEAN Summit ends Saturday.
