The United Nations says it will send an envoy to Burma next week to set up a program that monitors violations against children.
It says the U.N. special representative for children and armed conflict, Radhika Coomaraswamy, was invited by Burma's government to visit the country next Monday through Friday.
The United Nations says Coomaraswamy will focus on the problem of child soldiers in Burma and children who need access to humanitarian aid.
It says she plans to meet with government officials, U.N. workers, and children affected by conflict.
Human rights groups have criticized Burma's government for recruiting child soldiers.
They have also accused Burma of other rights abuses, including torture and forced labor.
