Frustration is mounting over Myanmar’s generally feeble response to one of its worst disasters in memory and particularly the delays in giving visas to aid workers and landing rights for relief flights.
Thai Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej cancelled a planned trip to Myanmar this weekend after the junta’s announcement that it would not welcome foreign aid workers, just hours after he said he would go.
