US Senate approved sanctions against Myanmar

On December 19, 2007, the US Senate unanimously passed the Block Burmese JADE (Junta's Anti-Democratic Efforts) Act of 2007, legislation that would impose new economic sanctions and travel restrictions on leaders from Myanmar. The bill was intended to push the Myanmar junta to restore democratic rule. The legislation imposed new financial sanctions, created the position of the Special Representative and Policy Coordinator for Burma which was intended to work with Myanmar's neighbors and other interested countries, including the EU and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), to develop a comprehensive approach to the problem, including pressure, dialogue, and support for non-governmental organizations providing humanitarian relief to Myanmar.
