Last week, Assistant Secretary of State Richard Soloman said the U.S. government is considering additional economic sanctions against My a nmar, formerly Burma. Soloman said the military has failed to transfer power to a civilian government, as decided in elections last May. Myanmar has also failed to release all political prisoners and improve its narcotics suppression, he said. Also last week, the U.N. Human Rights Commission voted to condemn Myanmar for various violations.
