International parliamentary action on Burma/Myanmar

Websites/Multiple Documents

Title: ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Myanmar Caucus (AIPMC)
Description/subject: " Since its inaugural meeting in Kuala Lumpur, on 26-28 November 2004, AIPMC has been calling on the military government in Burma to bring about changes and democratic reforms in the country. The grouping of ASEAN Legislators from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Cambodia have continuously called for the unconditional release of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, as well as for the freedom of over a thousand other political prisoners in Burma. One of AIPMC's initial campaigns was to urge ASEAN to deny Burma its turn at chairing the regional bloc in 2006. Having succeeded in its campaign, members of the Caucus have now further called on ASEAN to suspend the military government's ASEAN membership if it fails to show concrete democratic reforms in the country, such as acknowledging the 1990 national general election results and convening Parliament. AIPMC has affiliate members and partners in the form of national caucuses and parliamentary groups outside ASEAN, such as in India, the Republic of Korea, Japan and countries in Europe. The body also works closely with the civil-society Burma movement and members of Burma's government-in-exile."

Title: Asean: Time to Interfere
Date of publication: April 2005
Description/subject: The Burma Asean chair issue is only first on lawmakers’ list... "In the middle of 2004, both ruling Barisan Nasional Government MPs and those from the opposition benches of the Dewan Rakyat (People’s Assembly) established the Pro-Democracy Myanmar [Burma] Caucus of the Malaysian parliament. It was something of an historical event as it was one of the rare occasions when there was a consensus among Malaysian parliamentarians from a broad political spectrum that the region was about to encounter a major diplomatic crisis which would potentially have grave implications for the region’s political and economic future. Thus, as the MP entrusted with the task of finding a realistic and practical way out of the embarrassing prospect of Myanmar taking its turn as chairman of Asean in 2006, I drew up a plan, together with my fellow members of the caucus, to treat this as an Asean-wide concern. It was decided that the best way to assess the commitment of other Asean MPs was to gather them together on a friendly basis to hear their views regarding the impending dangers that the region would inevitably face in its relations with partners who had been traditionally engaged with Asean in bilateral and multilateral dialogues.Invitations were sent to other Asean parliamentarians. Positive responses were received from five of them: Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. The outcome was the formation in Kuala Lumpur in November 2004 of the Asean Inter-Parliamentary Myanmar Caucus, of which I am privileged to be the chairman..."
