Ambassador Haley Delivers Remarks at a UN Security Council Meeting on Burma


“The world is watching and waiting for Burma to act. What we have seen so far is cruel and barbaric. To top it off, they have the gall to blame the media. Unhindered media access is vitally important. Journalists like the two imprisoned Reuters reporters are an indispensable source of information. I also call on the Secretary-General to quickly appoint a Special Envoy for Burma. And I call on the Burmese government to allow a UN fact-finding mission and the Special Rapporteur into the country. Without the media and UN personnel in Burma to shed light on the crimes being committed, there is no hope for justice for the victims.”

– Ambassador Nikki Haley
