UN Special Envoy Visits Myanmar
Vijay Nambiar, an Indian diplomat who was appointed U.N. special envoy to Myanmar earlier this year, represents the first UN official to have visited Myanmar soon after Myanmar's first-in- two-decade general election on Nov 7 and the release of Aung San Suu Kyi from the last seven years' house arrest on Nov 13.
During his brief stay, Nambiar is scheduled to meet with high-ranking government officials and Aung San Suu Kyi, according to the sources.
Myanmar's Nov 7 general election was the first in two decades for multi-party participation, representing the fifth step of its seven-step roadmap to democracy and aimed at transforming from a military government to a civilian one.
