Remarks
Susan E. Rice
Permanent Representative to the United Nations
New York City
August 11, 2009



"The United States will join with others in introducing a statement for consideration by the council that condemns the conviction of Aung San Suu Kyi, that calls for her immediate release and ability to participate in the political process. We recognise that other members of the council may take different views on this, and we think it is important nonetheless to have a discussion and a debate and to seek as a matter of principle and policy a statement by the council in accord with the principles of the charter and the principles of democracy in respect for human rights."
