The European Union has imposed more sanctions on Burma.
The new sanctions -- adopted at an EU foreign ministers' meeting in Brussels -- include an embargo on the import of timber, gems and metals from Burma.
They also extend a list of Burmese leaders and their relatives subject to a travel ban and assets freeze.
The EU foreign ministers urged Burma's military government to enter into a "meaningful dialogue" that will lead to democracy. They also called for the lifting of all restrictions on detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
