Southeast Asian organization calls for effort to curb tariffs

Lawmakers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations opened their seventh general assembly in Bangkok Wednesday by calling on industrialized countries to refrain from protectionism and to end what the Malaysian delegate termed ''economic victimization.'' Delegates to the annual meeting of the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Organization also urged closer cooperation to combat growing drug addiction and to protect the environment. The agenda includes discussion on Indochinese refugees, Afghanistan, West Asia, and South Africa's apartheid. Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Indonesia were represented at the four-day meeting.
