Burma may face action by the U.N. Security Council after the ruling military junta extended the detention of opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a State Department spokesman, Sean McCormack, said.
“There’s going to be a briefing for the Security Council,” Mr. McCormack said in Washington yesterday, according to a State Department transcript. “I certainly wouldn’t preclude the possibility that action by the Security Council would end with just a briefing.” He didn’t elaborate.
Secretary-General Annan yesterday said he is “deeply disappointed” that Ms. Suu Kyi’s detention was extended May 27 for another year.
