 UN: Burma Must Release Remaining Political Prisoners

The United Nations Secretary General says Burma’s government must release all remaining political prisoners as its first priority in improving its relations with the international community.

According to a U.N. statement, Ban Ki-moon said Friday it was the “single most important step” the government should take. He welcomed the government’s recent reform measures, and said he hoped they would lead soon to “concrete action” that will bring progress towards peace, democracy, and prosperity.
