Source: Times of India

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) called on Wednesday on the government of Burma to declare clearly that all forms of forced labour were banned in the country.
The United Nations agency's governing body, which includes representatives of governments, employers' groups and labour unions, also urged Burma's military rulers to prevent recruitment of child soldiers.

The Burmese authorities should "make at the highest level an unambiguous public statement that all forms of forced labour are prohibited throughout the country and will be duly punished," it said in a statement.
