U.N. Says Progress Made in Burma Talks

Source: Associated Press

The United Nations said today its envoy made progress during his six-day mission in Burma to promote a dialogue between the military government and democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

The claim came despite signs that the mission of U.N. envoy Ibrahim Gambari did not go well, including his failure to be received by the junta chief, Senior Gen. Than Shwe, and the military government's rejection of Gambari's proposal of a three-way meeting involving a junta member, Suu Kyi and himself.

However, the government has invited Gambari to return to Burma, and he expects to do so in the next few weeks.
