Burma's ruling generals have accused Western nations of "blind and prejudiced meddling" in the internal affairs of the Southeast Asian country.
A commentary carried in official newspapers today (Monday) also warns of an "endless cycle of military coups," if a Western-style democracy is imposed in Burma.
The commentary says Western powers have created obstacles and hindered the Burmese government's efforts to establish peace and stability and to set up a democratic state and market oriented economy.
The ruling military has repeatedly said its goal is a transition to democracy, but that moving too quickly could lead to instability.
Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition National League for Democracy party won 1990 elections by a landslide, but has never been allowed to assume power. The Nobel peace laureate and top officials of the party she leads have been detained since a May 30th clash between her supporters and pro-government groups.
