The Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, today commented on last night's developments on Burma at the UN. He said:

"The eyes of the world are still on the situation in Burma. We welcome the report of Ambassador Gambari to the UN Security Council yesterday. The signs of progress are welcome but there remain major steps that need to be taken to ensure that the people of Burma have their voice heard about their own future.”

"Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has called for a 'meaningful and time-bound dialogue', and I think that does provide the right framework for both the international community and the regime to find a way forward to this very serious situation.”
