Daya Gamage – US Bureau Asian Tribune

The Government of the United States issued the following statement through its State Department spokesman Sean McCormack on November 29 in Washington reiterating the U.S. position toward Burma. “The United States condemns the Burmese regime’s continued arrest of democracy activists and harassment of Buddhist monks. Recent reports of monastery closings by Burma’s ruling generals also are deeply troubling. This repression belies the regime’s claims to cooperate fully with the United Nations, which has repeatedly sought an end to the detention of political activists."
