EU policy chief seeks 'irreversible' democracy in Burma

The European Union foreign policy chief, Baroness Ashton, has said the world must help Burma make its journey towards democracy "irreversible".

The EU has suspended all sanctions against the country apart from an arms embargo.

Catherine Ashton, who is in the country to show the EU's support for recent political reforms, said she would open a new, embassy-level office in Rangoon.
