Japan Supports Democracy in Burma

Support Democracy in Burma...blog about the Myanmar Hunta!

YANGON, Myanmar: Japan canceled a multimillion-dollar grant to Myanmar on Tuesday to protest the junta's crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators, as a UN envoy pressed Asian countries to take the lead in resolving the Myanmar crisis.

Japan, the largest aid donor to Myanmar, had earlier said that it would suspend some assistance in response to the death of a Japanese journalist, Kenji Nagai, among at least 10 people killed when troops fired into crowds of peaceful protesters during the Sept. 26-27 crackdown.
