(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesman)

Israel is very disappointed by the verdict issued (11 August) in Myanmar against Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and is troubled by the decision that she must remain under house arrest for another year and half. 

Israel joins the call of the Secretary General of the United Nations and the international community to immediately release Ms. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and hopes that free and fair democratic elections will be held in 2010 as promised by the Government of Myanmar.
