Burma's military government says the recent action by the United Nations Security Council to add Burma to its agenda will have no effect on constitutional convention meetings set to resume on Tuesday.
General Kyaw Hsan, Burma's information minister and secretary of the convention's convening commission, also told reporters Sunday there would be no dialogue between the military government and the opposition National League of Democracy. He said the constitutional convention, which the NLD has boycotted, would be the best place for discussion.
Delegates to the convention, which the government calls a key part of its seven stage "road-map to democracy," have been hand-picked by the military.
The convention was first convened in 1993. Its last meeting was adjourned last January.
