European Union special envoy for Myanmar Piero Fassino expressed support Saturday for UN efforts to promote national reconciliation in the military-ruled country.

A day after meeting in New York with the United Nations special envoy for Myanmar, Fassino said the EU wants to help foster dialogue and reconciliation in the Southeast Asian nation after the military regime suppressed peaceful protests in September.

The EU "brings, with conviction, its support and backing to the action of the United Nations, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and his special representative Ibrahim Gambari," Fassino said.
