ASEAN Presses Myanmar to Release Suu Kyi

The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) convened over the weekend in Singapore and criticized the Myanmar military junta's continued imprisonment of Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. The junta's Foreign Affairs Minister subsequently assured his counterpart in Singapore that Suu Kyi would be released in 6 months when her sentence is due to end.

This belongs in the "I'll believe it when I see it" category. Of course, they could release her only to detain her again and put her under house arrest.

I trust Myanmar's military junta about as much as I trust Robert Mugabe.
