British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he wants new EU sanctions to be imposed on Myanmar in the wake the violent crackdown on pro-democracy protests there. Speaking at the start of a day of global protests against Myanmar's military junta Saturday, Brown said he wanted tougher EU sanctions, including a ban on future investment in the country, which also known as Burma. "The anger of the world has been expressed about the outrages that have taken place against the people of Burma," Brown said during a televised meeting with Buddhist monks gathered in his 10 Downing Street Office before the protests. "I want the Security Council to oversee a process of reconciliation in Burma led by the secretary-general, and I want the EU to impose further sanctions on the regime to make it absolutely clear that we will not tolerate the abuses taking place."
