Javier Solana, Secretary General of the Council of the EU and High Representative for CFSP, met Piero Fassino, EU Special Envoy for Myanmar, on 17 January 2008 in Brussels. They discussed the latest developments in the country. Piero Fassino told Javier Solana about his efforts to promote democracy in Myanmar in close coordination with the United Nations. He would be travelling in Asia over the following two months to get the support of all key Asian countries for diplomatic pressure to secure a political dialogue between the Myanmar regime and the opposition. Earlier in January, the EU Special Envoy had highlighted the risk of having the Myanmar crisis eclipsed by emerging crises elsewhere, a reference to Pakistan and Kenya. He had then added that one of the key objectives of the EU remained the release of Myanmar opposition leader and Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi as well as of all other leading political prisoners.
