Myanmar’s plight

An open letter on the subject of Myanmar and the detained leader Aung San Suu Kyi by Bono and Mitch McConnell (senior U.S. senator from Kentucky) was published in the International Herald Tribune on Monday. The authors ask for the Bush administration’s continued focus on the plight of Myanmar, as well as a tougher stance from the European countries: “The future of Myanmar rests with the return of democracy and the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and her colleagues.”
