US Envoy Kurt Campbell’s statement on his visit to Burma

By Kurt Campbell  •  May 10, 2010

US assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs Kurt Campbell arrived in Naypidaw on May 9, 2010 and proceeded to meet with the Junta, the NLD, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, ethnic leaders and other stakeholders.

“The key objective of my trip was to underscore the purposes and principles of our engagement, and to lay out the reasons for our profound disappointment in what we have witnessed to date,” the envoy said. “What we have seen to date leads us to believe that these elections will lack international legitimacy. We urge the regime to take immediate steps to open the process in the time remaining before the elections.”
