JOINT RESOLUTION

Approving the renewal of import restrictions contained in the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act of 2003.

Whereas the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) has failed to make substantial and measurable progress toward implementing a democratic government in Burma;

Whereas the courage and determination of the people of Burma in their struggle for freedom and justice remains steadfast and strong;

Whereas import sanctions and other restrictions against the SPDC and its affiliated entities should remain in force until Burma embarks on an irreversible path of reconciliation that includes the full and unfettered participation of the National League for Democracy and ethnic minorities in the country; and

Whereas the Department of State supports the continuation of sanctions against the SPDC: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress approves the renewal of the import restrictions contained in section 3(a)(1) of the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act of 2003.
