The US and France yesterday.......... called for international aid to be delivered to cyclone victims without the permission of the Burmese military government
if the regime continues to block the arrival of foreign aid workers and material assistance.
The US ambassador to the UN, Zalmay Khalilzad, said the US was "outraged by the slowness of the response of the government of Burma to welcome and accept assistance".
"We're shocked by the behaviour of the government. It should be a no-brainer to accept the offer made by the international community," he said.
