ASEAN Urged to Keep Burma on Agenda

Source: ABC News

The UN's rapporteur on human rights for Burma, Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, has called on the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) to maintain its pressure on Burma's military leaders.

Mr Pinheiro has called on next week's ASEAN summit to work for change in Burma, a member of the south-east Asian grouping.

"It is very important that ASEAN continue to highlight the concern about the country about the political situation," he said.

"The key for the solution for a better future in the country, for the political transition process to move ahead, is precisely the concern and the co-ordinated action of the ASEAN members."
