Statement on the Situation in Burma,
May 27, 2008

I am deeply troubled by the Burmese regime’s extension of National League for Democracy general secretary and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi’s house arrest on May 27. Aung San Suu Kyi’s current house arrest dates back to May 2003, when she was detained following the murderous assault by regime-sponsored thugs on her motorcade in Depayin. The United States calls upon the regime to release all political prisoners in Burma and begin a genuine dialog with Aung San Suu Kyi, the National League for Democracy, and other democratic and ethnic minority groups on a transition to democracy.

The United States will continue to help the people of Burma recover from the devastation of Cyclone Nargis and will continue to support the Burmese people’s long-term struggle for freedom. Laura and I look forward to the day when the people of Burma know true liberty and democracy.
