Rangoon -- Japan will give Burma $400,000 (40 million yen)
to build schools in border areas, official media reported

State-run newspapers said powerful military intelligence leader
Lt. Gen. Khin Nyunt made the announcement Wednesday at
the opening ceremony of a school for orphans donated by the
Japanese government.

Japan, once a major donor to Burma, froze all its aid programs
when the military-run State Law and Order Restoration
Council (SLORC) took power in 1988.

Tokyo announced its intention to resume overseas
development aid to Burma in July after the release of
opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi from nearly six years of
house arrest.
