In my previous post, I questioned why people continue to call the country Burma when, clearly (or so I thought), it should be called Myanmar.
My good friend and minister Harry just referred me to this BBC article on the issue which says that the U.K. and U.S. don’t recognize the name Myanmar since this name was chosen by the military junta which is currently controlling the country, repressing the people, and killing monks… among other things.
So. There you have it. Thanks Harry!
