Support grows for monitoring of Burma elections

Countries have been showing their support for the monitoring of elections in Burma as the date of the elections draws closer.

The United States congratulated the NLD and Burmese government on the use of ANFREL as a non-biased third party to overview the elections.

China supports the move as well, saying they believe that Myanmar is a sovereign nation and supports all members of their government and their decisions.

India, however, said they have always expressed reservations about working with the Thai government. They said Thai officials have continually derailed and undermined the dedicated efforts of all parties involved.

India said they are “pleased to emerge as a responsible and trustworthy partner in the regional peace processes.”
