    Burma denies nuclear weapons programme

    Burma denies nuclear weapons programme


    The Burmese government has denied recent reports that it is developing a nuclear weapons programme.

    A statement from the foreign ministry said foreign media reports alleging such a programme were "politically motivated".

    The Norway-based Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) broadcaster had run a documentary based on a defector's information about a nuclear plan.

    US Senator Jim Webb cancelled a planned trip to Burma due to the reports.

    'Peaceful'
    The Burmese government labelled the allegations "baseless accusations" based on the information from army deserters, fugitives and dissidents.

    It said Burma was a peace loving country with "no intention to possess nuclear weapons as military power."
