Council conclusions on Burma/Myanmar 2938th General Affairs Council meeting Luxembourg 27 Apr 2009


COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION

The Council adopted the following conclusions:

1. The Council reaffirms the European Union’s unwavering commitment to the people of Burma/Myanmar in achieving a peaceful transition to a legitimate civilian system of government, to fight poverty and to improve their social and economic conditions. The Council recognises that the political and socio-economic challenges facing the country can only be addressed through genuine dialogue with all stakeholders, including those from ethnic groups. The Council notes, however, that the authorities of Burma/Myanmar have still to take the steps necessary to make the planned 2010 elections a credible, transparent and inclusive process, based on international standards. It calls for the release of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and all other political prisoners and detainees.

2. In these circumstances, the Council deems it necessary to extend the current EU Common Position by another year, including the restrictive measures. The Council underlines its readiness to revise, amend or reinforce the measures it has already adopted in light of developments on the ground. The Council reiterates that the EU stands ready to respond positively to genuine progress in Burma/Myanmar. The EU remains open to dialogue with the authorities of Burma/Myanmar and is willing to meet them at ministerial level in the margins of the ASEM Foreign Ministers Meeting in Hanoi in May 2009.

3. The Council urges the government of Burma/Myanmar to engage more with the international community, to work towards a peaceful transition to democracy. It reaffirms the EU’s support for the Good Offices Mission of the UN Secretary General and his Special Advisor, Mr Gambari, and welcomes their continued personal commitment to further the political process. The EU will continue to promote the action of the Group of Friends of the SG and step up its dialogue on this issue, and on its implications for regional stability, with key actors, including ASEAN and its Member States, the United States, China, India and Japan. The EU encourages the authorities of Burma/Myanmar to engage the UN in a meaningful manner. In this context, the Council expresses its full support for the continued work of EU Special Envoy Piero Fassino in support of UN efforts, as well as coordinating with Asian partners, and in this context invites the Burma/Myanmar authorities to cooperate with him.

4. The Council welcomes the adoption of the Resolution 10/27 of the UN Human Rights Council and urges the authorities of Burma/Myanmar to comply with it, in full cooperation with the Special Rapporteur on the situation of Human Rights in Myanmar, Mr Quintana, whose extended mandate the Council welcomes. The Council is concerned by the deprivation of fundamental rights of ethnic minorities in Burma/Myanmar, in particular over the situation of the Rohingya ethnic minority in Northern Rakhin State, and urges the authorities to recognize their right to citizenship, and to protect all their human rights.

5. The Council welcomes the extension of the mandate of the Tripartite Core Group in coordinating post-Cyclone Nargis rehabilitation efforts, and hopes that the TCG will be able to continue its effective role in facilitating the flow of international assistance. In this context, it is critical that unfettered access by humanitarian agencies continues to be ensured. The EU recalls its large and growing role as a donor to the country and stands ready to increase its assistance to the people of Burma/Myanmar further.”

NLD sets conditions for 2010 Election

The Strait Times

Opposition sets conditions

YANGON- THE party of Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi Wednesday set stiff conditions for taking part in elections planned for 2010 by the ruling junta, including the release of the detained icon.

The National League for Democracy (NLD) issued a statement after a two-day meeting in Yangon to decide on its stance ahead of the polls, which critics have derided as a sham intended to entrench the generals’ power.

The statement said that it ‘intends to participate in the elections’ but only if all political prisoners including leaders of the NLD are ‘unconditionally’ released from jail.

Secondly it also demanded changes to a controversial army-backed constitution approved in May 2008 – days after Cyclone Nargis ravaged the country – under which the vote will be held.

The constitution gives the army a major role in any future government.

The third condition set by the NLD was that the elections had to be ‘inclusive, free and fair’ and held under international supervision.

The NLD said it also wanted to be able to study Myanmar’s upcoming party registration act and the law relating to the elections.

The military, which has ruled impoverished Myanmar since 1962, has announced the polls next year under its so-called ‘road map to democracy’.

Diplomats say the junta may be aiming for a date in March 2010.

Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi’s party won a landslide victory in 1990 elections but the military never let it take office.

Aung San Suu Kyi, 63, who won the Nobel prize in 1991, has been detained for most of the past two decades, mostly isolated from the outside world, only receiving visits from her doctor and lawyer. — AFP

Aung San Suu Kyi party members meet in Myanmar: spokesman

leave a comment »

Mon, Apr 27, 2009
AFP

YANGON, MYANMAR – Members of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s party came from across Myanmar on Monday to discuss elections planned for next year by the ruling junta, a spokesman said.

Around 100 members of the National League for Democracy (NLD) gathered at party headquarters in Myanmar’s largest city ahead of a full meeting starting on Tuesday, said spokesman Nyan Win.

The detained Nobel Peace Laureate’s party has not yet said whether it will take part in the general elections – which critics say are a sham aimed at entrenching the power of Myanmar’s military government.

‘About 100 party members have come to headquarters. We invited organisers from states and divisions (around the country). Now we will prepare for tomorrow’s meeting,’ Nyan Win told AFP.

‘We will discuss about the coming elections. We cannot say whether we will make decisions, it will be known after the discussions,’ he added.

He said the meeting of party members from around Myanmar was usually an annual event, but did not take place last year.

The NLD won a landslide victory in the country’s last elections in 1990 but the ruling generals refused to let the party take office.

The military has announced the polls next year under its so-called ‘roadmap to democracy’. Diplomats say the junta may be aiming for a date in March 2010.

The polls are set to be held under a new constitution that was approved in May last year, days after Cyclone Nargis devastated southern regions of the country and left 138,000 people dead or missing.

Myanmar has been ruled by the military since 1962 and is under tough sanctions imposed by the US and European countries because of its human rights records and continued detention of Aung San Suu Kyi.
