Sergio Pinheiro admits to difficulties in scrutinising Myanamar

Stephen Sackur talks to Paulo Pinheiro, the UN Human Rights Envoy to Myanmar and asks him what the international community should do about Myanmar?

Attempts to isolate the military junta in Myanmar, still known as Burma - led by the United States - have had little impact on the human rights situation there.

Nor has the Asian policy of engagement made much difference; the country is desperately poor and riven with ethnic conflicts and the United Nations' relationship with Rangoon remains difficult.
