Burma some progress in getting aid through

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Foreign Office Minister Meg Munn welcomed the agreement reached by the ASEAN Foreign Ministers on getting more aid into the area of Burma hit by cyclone Nargis. The death toll from the cyclone is thought to be more than 100,000, with many more people struggling to find clean water, food and shelter. 

The ASEAN (Association of South East Nations) countries are able to start delivering aid and relief workers as soon as practical arrangements are put in place. It is important that no obstacles are placed in the path of the tremendous effort being made on the ground by a number of international  non-governmental organisations. Technical assessment work is required to determine what is required, and where it should go.

The UK has already advised the ASEAN leaders that we will use the regional channel to deliver aid if that is the fastest and most practical way to meet the urgent needs of the people of Burma. The UK will participate in the ASEAN sponsored UN donors meeting on 24 May.
