Britain's Conservative Party is calling on the European Union to strengthen its stance against Burma and the detention of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of Burma's National League for Democracy, has not been seen in public since May 30th, when the country's ruling military detained her during a political tour.
In a statement Sunday, the Conservative Party's "shadow foreign affairs minister," Michael Ancram, called Monday "D-Day for EU action on Burma."
He said Britain must be prepared to impose unilateral sanctions if EU foreign ministers do not agree to impose stronger measures. The ministers will meet Monday and Tuesday in advance of a two-day session with Asian foreign ministers.
Burma gained independence from Britain in 1947.
