UPDATE-UN Security Council on Verdict of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi

“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,” US Ambassador Susan Rice told reporters.
But she conceded that other council members may take “different views” on the matter, a sign that countries such as China and Russia might seek to water down the statement.
Rice said the goal of the United States and its allies on the 15-member body was to seek a statement in line with “the principles of the UN Charter, the principle of democracy and respect for human rights that we are committed to.”
