Source: Mizzima News

Singapore has reaffirmed that its priorities in Burma, in alignment with those of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), are stability and policy change, and not the ousting of the military regime.

Speaking to reporters in Tokyo following meetings with both Japanese and Chinese officials, on Saturday and Friday, respectively, Singapore's Foreign Minister, George Yeo, said he believes his country's approach to confronting the situation inside Burma is consistent with both ASEAN and United Nations initiatives.

"If nothing is done, the situation is potentially explosive, therefore we should work together to help the Myanmar people and embark on fresh approach to national reconciliation," stated Yeo on Saturday.
