Burma's military junta has criticized U.S. attempts to put the country on the U.N. Security Council's permanent agenda.
The state-run New Light of Myanmar newspaper said Saturday the action shows that Washington wants to overthrow the ruling junta and install a puppet government.
The paper accused U.S. lawmakers of working with Burmese exile groups to use the Security Council for political gain.
The United States submitted a formal request this month to have Burma put on the council's agenda, calling the country a threat to international peace and security.
The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, said a refugee crisis in Burma, outbreaks of HIV/AIDS and other communicable diseases, drug trafficking and the military government's detention of more than one-thousand political prisoners are having a destabilizing impact on the region.
Similar U.S. efforts in the past to have Burma placed on the Council's permanent agenda have been blocked by Russia, China and other Asian countries.
