Title: Letter dated 24 October 2012 from the Permanent Representative of Myanmar to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General
Date of publication: 24 October 2012
Description/subject: "...1. A country-specific resolution on Myanmar was first tabled by the European Union in the Third Committee of the General Assembly in 1991. Since then it has become a ritual for the European Union to do the same on a yearly basis. 2. Myanmar has all along rejected the resolution and dissociated itself from the adoption thereof. This approach is taken for a couple of reasons. Firstly, as a matter of principle, Myanmar rejects country-specific resolutions. Secondly, the resolution did not reflect nor recognize the realities on the ground. It mainly relies on unsubstantiated information leading to erroneous conclusions. The draft resolutions are usually influenced by the recommendations and observations of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar, whose views are usually focused only on the perspective of ideal standards of human rights without giving due consideration to the broader aspects of national reconciliation and peace and stability of the country. 3. This memorandum is intended to provide States Members of the United Nations with objective information on the human rights situation in Myanmar. It is our hope that it will be able to rectify the misperception and misunderstanding that may still persist about Myanmar..."

Title: Response by Ambassador H.E. U Thaung Tun, Representative of the Union of Myanmar to the Oral Presentation by Special Rapporteur Professor Paulo Sergio Pinheiro,
Date of publication: 24 October 2007
Description/subject: Response by Ambassador H.E. U Thaung Tun Representative of the Union of Myanmar to the Oral Presentation by Special Rapporteur Professor Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, in the Third Committee at the 62nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly..."...the Special Rapporteur's report on Myanmar as contained in document A/62/223 is less than objective and is replete with unfounded allegations. It is essentially the same as that of the last year and largely reproduces allegations emanating from insurgents and expatriate groups opposed to the government. However, to his credit the Special Rapporteur acknowledges in paragraph 62 of the report that he was not able to verify the accuracy of the allegations received. He attributes this to the fact that he was unable to visit the country in recent years. In reality, the Distinguished Professor is someone who is not unfamiliar with the complex situation obtaining in Myanmar, the multitude of challenges it faces and the efforts of the Government to promote political, economic and socio-cultural development. The Professor in fact has no difficulty to exchange views on the situation in Myanmar with interested parties including the Myanmar Missions to the United Nations in New York and Geneva. It is also possible for him to verify the reports he receives by communicating with the Myanmar Government and the UN Country Team. Unsubstantiated allegations have no place in a Special Rapporteur's report..."
