The United Nations envoy to Burma, Razali Ismail, says he wants to return to the Southeast Asian country for another try at brokering talks between the military government and the democratic opposition.
Mr. Razali, a veteran Malaysian diplomat, was last in Burma late last year. He tells Reuters news agency he is awaiting an invitation from the government in Rangoon.
Last week, Burma's military hinted it may be ready to re-start political talks with the main opposition National League for Democracy. In a statement faxed to Reuters news agency, the government said Burma can only achieve progress by discussing problems in a constructive way. It also said it had complete trust in opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Mr. Razali tells Reuters he wants the military to honor its commitment.
