Gambari to Visit India, China in January

By Lalit K Jha - United Nations

The UN Special Envoy on Burma, Ibrahim Gambari, is scheduled to visit India and China in January to continue his consultations with two of Burma’s key neighbors, a top UN official said on Thursday.

Calling India and China two major players in Burma, the UN spokesperson said the dates of his visit to the two countries have not yet been finalized.

“He is planning during this month to go to India and China,” said the spokesperson. It is understood that Gambari is trying to schedule appointments with top leaders of India and China before announcing the dates.

“As you know, a number of things have happened in terms of consultation with different actors and different international leaders involved with the crisis,” his spokesperson said. “As far as I know, he is just going to go further into discussions with two major actors in the situation in Myanmar [Burma].”

Gambari has an invitation from the Burmese government to return to the country to carry forward his mission of restoration of democracy and protection of human rights in the country.

“He has a standing invitation to go back to Burma,” said the spokesperson. The visit will be scheduled sometime after his Gambari’s visits to India and China.
