BANGKOK, Thailand – Thailand's prime minister says Burma believes its cyclone relief operations are under control and it doesn't need foreign experts.
Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej says Burma's ruling junta, which has renamed the country Myanmar, gave him its "guarantee" Wednesday that there are no disease outbreaks and no starvation among survivors of devastating Cyclone Nargis.
Samak says Burma's rulers do not want any foreign aid workers because they "have their own team to cope with the situation."
Samak returned Wednesday from Burma, where he met with Prime Minister Lt. Gen. Thein Sein.
Samak also visited a government relief center.
He said: "From what I have seen I am impressed with their management."
