UN’s Myanmar envoy leaves Tokyo, completing Asian consultations
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Adviser Ibrahim Gambari met with Japanese Foreign Minister Masahiko Komura and other senior Japanese officials, focusing on Japan's support to the Secretary-General’s good offices, including ways to help Myanmar address socio-economic and humanitarian challenges.
Prior to arriving in Tokyo, Mr. Gambari visited Beijing, Jakarta and Singapore and he will return to New York before heading to Myanmar next week. Exact dates for that visit are being finalized.
His visit to Myanmar will be the third to the South-East Asian nation since the authorities cracked down on Buddhist monks and other pro-democracy demonstrators in protests that began last August.
