Burma's military government says the country is making progress toward democracy.
The information minister, Brigadier General Kyaw Hsan, said the remaining parts of the seven-step roadmap process will be adopted at the next constitutional national convention.
The minister made the remarks in the new capital, Naypyitaw, Monday at the first news conference open to foreign journalists.
The minister spoke as international pressure mounts on Burma to implement the roadmap.
The constitutional convention was established as the first stage of the roadmap.
It is intended to help establish power-sharing agreements between a future elected government and the ruling military.
Burma's military has ruled the country since 1962 and ignored a 1990 landslide election victory by opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Since then, Aung San Suu Kyi has spent most of her time in prison or under house arrest.
