VOA Peter Heinlein's exclusive interview with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon includes Burma issues:
VOA: First, on Burma/Myanmar. Are you ready to appoint a new Special Representative to Burma -Myanmar to facilitate the national reconciliation process? What's your plan for persuading Burmese leaders to free pro-democracy activists?
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon: I am still concerned about the lack of progress in the democratization process in Myanmar. My predecessor, former Secretary General Kofi Annan, has appointed a Special Envoy for Myanmar's Human Rights, Mr. Gambari. And I am also going to use his experience in the future to help the Myanmar people to democratize their systems.
