"The typhoon victims face huge problems... You must accept assistance!" "No! No! Survivors can rely on us to solve the problem!" "But without help there may soon be no survivors!" "So?.. No survivors, no problem!!" 19 May, 2008
Reference Number: DCDL-0006514
Shows two representatives from the United Nations and two members of the Myanmar government (one probably Than Shwe, head of the military junta) sitting in armchairs discussing the assistance required by Myanmar after the destruction caused by Cyclone Nargis. The UN officials urge the Myanmar politicians to accept aid for the survivors before lack of aid means there are no survivors. The Myanmar military say that if there are no survivors there is no problem. Refers to the reluctance of the Myanmar military government to accept aid from non Asian sources because they are determined to manage the situation themselves. Meanwhile thousands of people face death by starvation or disease as they wait for help.
