Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has written to Myanmar top leader Than Shwe to express ASEAN (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations) leaders' firmly support to the mission by United Nations envoy Ibrahim Gambari.

In a letter to Chairman of the Myanmar State Peace and Development Council Senior-General Than Shwe released by the Foreign Ministry on Monday, Lee said, "I would like to emphasise the importance which the ASEAN countries, and indeed the whole international community, attach to Mr Gambari's mission."

"We strongly urge your government to grant Mr. Gambari full access to all parties in Myanmar, as you have done in the past, and to work with Mr. Gambari to try to find a way forward."

Writing in his capacity as ASEAN chair, Lee said that ASEAN leaders were "most disturbed" by reports of the violent means that the authorities in Myanmar have deployed against the demonstrators, which have resulted in injuries and deaths.

He pointed out that the confrontation would have serious implications not just for the country, but also for ASEAN and the whole region.

Gambari arrived in Yangon on Sunday to help all parties involved find a peaceful resolution.
