The U.N. Security Council held its first formal discussion of the situation in Burma Friday.
The Security Council meeting on Burma was closed to the public and the Council agenda did not specify which issues would be discussed.
The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, did not give any details of the meeting at a press conference afterwards. He did, however, say the U.S. plans to work for a Security Council resolution on Burma later this year.
The Council voted September 15th to include Burma on its agenda. The move came over objections from China and was condemned by the Burmese government, which said the country does not pose a threat to regional security.
