The National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma marked its 16th anniversary yesterday with calls for national reconciliation and increased humanitarian aid.
In a statement NCGUB prime minister Dr Sein Win said conditions in Burma remained dire.
â€œIn this kind of situation, Burma needs to be free. Being free will not be possible without national reconciliation. Everything is deteriorating gradually,â€ Sein Win said.
â€œWe are encouraging humanitarian aid to reach the hands of people who really need it. This is our policy . . . we need to have unity among the people for all to have the national spirit in order to try to build democracy and a federal union.â€
