UN activates Index Number 19653: Aung San Suu Kyi demands expansion of UNDP Programmes in Myanmar


Courtesy of The Guardian
"So what we have agreed to, to date – today, and what we will also discuss with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi tomorrow – we have indicated that we would be prepared to support an expansion of the UNDP’s country program inside Burma. This is something that both Daw Suu and the government has supported and wants. We are prepared to support an increase in assistance directly for microcredit and health inside the country. Again, this is something in particular that Daw Suu is interested in."

I am truly appalled. UNDP would be the last agency anyone should be putting their funds through in Myanmar and that too, for an expansion of its programs. It is the most useless organization to date and the US knows this well. If they are using UNDP towards its own political interest, that is fine - just say so. But to say and make it sound as if UNDP is the only organization on the ground to enhance microcredit and health is all rubbish... and definitely, the US knows this too.
