Myanmar: Annan Concerned At Removal Of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's Security Staff
United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today voiced his serious concern over the withdrawal of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's personal security detail, and further restrictions on the already limited access to the Nobel Peace Laureate by her doctor.
Mr. Annan "reminds the Myanmar authorities of their responsibility to ensure Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's security and well-being," said a statement issued by a UN spokesman in New York.
The statement also the reiterated the Secretary-General's previous calls on the authorities to honour their expressed commitments to the UN and to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) by lifting all the restrictions on Ms. Suu Kyi's movement and activities as soon as possible.
They were also called on to take "the requisite
steps to ensure that the process of democratization and
national reconciliation in Myanmar is fully inclusive."
