embassy has collected a considerable quantity of humanitarian
assistance goods donations - primarily food and medicine - in Brunei
from private Bruneians and resident Burmese nationals. He said that
to date, the Burmese embassy has shipped over 4 metric tons of cargo
by airfreight and a twenty foot container by sea to aid Cyclone
Nargis victims. He did not provide any details about how this aid
would be distributed in Burma.
