Release all political prisoners in Myanmar: EUFebruary 24th, 2009 - 7:54 pm ICT by IANS
Brussels, Feb 24 (IANS) The European Union has called for “an immediate and unconditional release” of all political prisoners and detainees in Myanmar, including opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The EU presidency, held currently by the Czech Republic, urged for an all-inclusive dialogue between the authorities and the democratic forces, including ethnic groups in Myanmar, EuAsiaNews reported.
The statement issued by the presidency pointed to the recent visit by the UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser Ibrahim Gambari and noted with regret that there is no tangible outcome of his visit to Burma.
The EU shares the view expressed by Gambari that it is the time to demonstrate the Myanmar’s commitment to addressing concretely the issues of concern to the international community.
