Thailand Hopes To Hold Second Round Of International Talks On Burma - 2004-02-07


Thailand says it hopes to hold a second round of international talks on Burma by mid-year if the Burmese government makes moves toward democracy.

A Thai Foreign Ministry spokesman (Sihasak Phuangketkeow) said today (Saturday) that Burma's military junta must first set a date to convene a constitutional convention. The comments came after Thai Foreign Minister Surakiart Sathirathai held talks with his Burmese counterpart, Win Aung.

In December, Burma pledged it would begin a so-called "road-map to democracy" by launching a national convention to draft a new constitution. It has not yet announced when that will be.

Critics say talks of the "road map" are a ploy by the military junta to stay in power.
