The UN envoy to Burma Mr Gambari ended for his seventh trips without meeting country's top military leader Senior General Than Shwe, but he met with Burma's Prime Minister General Thein Sein on Tuesday afternoon. He arrived on Saturday aiming to urge the junta to initiate the process of national reconciliation.

Mr Gambari met Aung San Suu Kyi on Monday and members of the central executive committee of the National League for Democracy.

On Saturday and Sunday he also met with Foreign Minister Nyan Win, liaison minister Aung Kyi, Information Minister Kyaw Hsan, Minister for Health Dr. Kyaw Myint, UN official delegations, and pro-junta civilian organizations including Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA) and other diplomats in Yangon.
