The United States Senate is being asked to urge the United Nations Security Council to take immediate action against Burma's military government.
U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, who introduced the resolution Monday, said the U.N. Security Council must respond to the growing threats posed by Burma's government to its neighbors and the region.
Mr. McConnell accused Burma's military government of trying to buy weapons from North Korea, China and Russia, engaging in human and drug trafficking and doing nothing to stop the spread of AIDS in the country.
He said if the U.N. takes up the Burma issue, significant strides will be made toward democracy and justice in the country.
