Quote from today’s Guardian On Line:
The UN’s attempt to resolve the political crisis in Burma and end the brutal treatment of protesters has not succeeded, the secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, admitted last night.
Mr Ban said his special envoy, Ibrahim Gambari, had delivered “the strongest possible message” about the junta’s bloody crackdown against anti-government protesters to Burma’s reclusive military leader, General Than Shwe.
However, in the first account of the meeting, which took place on Tuesday, Mr Ban said he could not describe it as a success.
And the point is….?
Tell us something we didn’t already know before it happens.
