Myanmar's junta leader stalled a UN envoy for yet another day Monday, delaying until Tuesday his chance to present world demands for an end to the junta's crackdown on pro-democracy protesters. Ibrahim Gambari, the UN's special envoy to Myanmar who has been in Myanmar since Saturday, has finally been given an appointment to meet with Senior Gen. Than Shwe on Tuesday in the junta's remote capital, Naypyitaw, an Asian diplomat said. Instead of the meeting Monday that he had hoped for, Gambari was taken on a government-sponsored trip to attend a seminar in the far northern Shan state on EU's relations with Southeast Asia, said other diplomats. The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity, citing protocol.
