EU To Reward Myanmar by Easing Sanctions – US Secretary, Hilary Clinton, has already announced to ease Myanmar Sanctions a week ago. After British Prime Minister David Cameron tripped to Myanmar, EU optical on Myanmar opens wider.
According European Voice,
The European Union’s foreign ministers are expected to ease sanctions against Myanmar when they meet in Luxembourg on 23 April.
Diplomats suggest that even the EU’s long-standing arms embargo might be open for discussion. However, the arms embargo will “certainly not” be lifted, according to a diplomat from a country with a more hesitant stance, adding that no one is “seriously suggesting” selling arms to the military regime.
Among EU nations, France seems to step slow to lift Myanmar Sanctions completely as there are still political prisoners and civil war in Myanmar.
