U.N. labour agency virtually expels Myanmar

GENEVA, June 17 (Reuters) - The International Labour Organisation (ILO) on
Thursday virtually expelled Myanmar, banning it from receiving aid or
attending meetings until it halts forced labour, an ILO spokesman said.
The U.N. agency's annual meeting, in which its 174 member states, as well as
workers and employers' representatives vote, adopted a resolution by an
overwhelming majority. ``This is as isolated as a country can get in the
ILO, which does not have any mechanism for formal expulsion,'' spokesman
John Doohan told Reuters.
