§ Mr. Goodlad
The situation in Burma remains of great concern. There has been no significant progress towards democratic reform and human rights abuses continue.
We are encouraged, however, by the meeting on 20 September between Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the ruling state law and order restoration council. We hope that this first meeting signals the start of serious discussions leading to real democratic reform in Burma and the early and unconditional release of ASSK and other political prisoners.
