The United States on Friday urged a UN special envoy to Myanmar to quickly return to the military-led country to meet with the regime and with imprisoned pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. White House spokesman Tony Fratto said the US wanted UN special envoy Ibrahim Gambari to return "so that Burma can move toward a peaceful transition to democracy."
