FM Pranab : India opposes Myanmar sanctions

According to a news report in the Business Standard, "after a meeting with Myanmar's Foreign Minister Nyan Win on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting, India's External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee called for an inquiry into the violence on the streets but said New Delhi opposed sanctions". Last week, U.S. President George W. Bush unveiled new economic sanctions against members of the government in Myanmar in response to the military crackdown on protestors in Yangoon and call upon other countries to follow suit.
