Asked what efforts were being made by the Government to persuade Burma to open its borders to allow aid into the country, the PMS said that we did welcome Burma’s call for international assistance and hoped that the authorities in the country would allow access to aid workers to help coordinate the massive response that would clearly be needed to help all of the survivors.

We were working closely with the UN and other aid agencies that had rapid assessment teams on the ground. On more specific matters, it would be best to check with the Foreign Office.
