Jan. 20, 2010, 10:23 a.m.
1. (SBU) The Government of Burma sent a condolence letter to the Government of Haiti after the earthquake; but, according to MOFA DG for Political Affairs Kyaw Tin, nothing further is in the works. The CDA phoned Kyaw Tin to offer USG facilitation assistance if the GOB has a donation in mind (per reftel). The DG noted that some other Southeast Asian governments have reportedly offered Haiti assistance, which the CDA confirmed. The DG said he would check with the Foreign Minister and perhaps with other ministries; but, again, as of now, Burma has no plans to make a donation. DINGER
