NCUB calls on the ASEM to seriously take the matters relating to developments inside Burma

Dhaka, 23
rd July 03:  The National Council of the Union of Burma in a statement dated 23rd July 03 welcomed on behalf of the people of Burma the move to include into the agenda of matters relating to Burma in the ongoing Asia Europe Meeting (ASEM) at Bali, Indonesia, which is being held on 23rd and 24th July.

The statement further added that, the declining situation in Burma is no more confined to the country alone; rather the problems have spread out and affected the regional security.  Till now the ruling Burmese military regime have paid no heed to the international call for changes.

The NCUB also hailed the invitation of Mr Razali Ishmail, the special UN envoy on Burmese affairs into the ASEM, for solving the Burmese crisis by the EU  ASEAN as proper. 

Finally, the NCUB hoped that matters relating to the SPDC junta’s immediate release of all the NLD members in prisons including the top leaders of the party U Tin Oo and Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, opening the closed NLD offices, and investigation into the May 30th Depeyin massacre would be included in the meeting.  The NCUB in all seriousness has urged all the parties concerned to endeavour and assist in carrying out in unity for the recognition and implementation of the results of the 1990 general elections, and formation of the people’s parliament as envisaged by the Burmese people.

NCUB is the main Burmese political opposition group consisting of Burmese and non-Burmese political parties.  #
