Myanmar's state media Sunday hailed the failure of a US resolution at the UN Security Council demanding faster democratic reforms in the country, calling it a victory against meddling by Western nations. The United States lost its bid Friday to pass a resolution that called on Myanmar's military government to release all political prisoners, speed up progress toward democracy and stop attacks against ethnic minorities. China and Russia cast a rare double veto that blocked the resolution's passage. Both countries' ambassadors said the Security Council was not the proper place to discuss Myanmar because the country does not pose a threat to international peace and security. Myanmar's government issued no formal reaction but state media, which closely reports the junta line, praised the outcome.
