Webb Cancels Burma Trip Over Nukes

Thursday, 03 Jun 2010 06:26 AM

BANGKOK – US Senator Jim Webb said he had cancelled a trip to Myanmar on Thursday after reports alleging the military government is working with North Korea to develop a nuclear programme.

"News reports published today contain new allegations regarding the possibility that the Burmese government has been working in conjunction with North Korea in order to develop a nuclear programme," a statement from Webb said.

While it is unclear if the allegations have "substantive merit... it would be unwise and potentially counter-productive for me to visit Burma" without further clarification, Webb said. Burma is Myanmar's former name.
