Louis Michel, European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, welcomed here on Friday the announcement that the Myanmar authorities plan to allow international humanitarian workers into the country.

"I am relieved by this decision from the Myanmar authorities," said Michel in a statement.

"This means that the international humanitarian aid community can finally provide the relief and assistance so badly needed to the hundreds of thousands of people affected by the devastating Cyclone Nargis," he added.

He urged the Myanmar authorities to immediately provide the international community with the practical details of the agreement.

The Myanmar authorities made the announcement to allow international aid workers to get into the country to help victims of a devastating cyclone that killed tens of thousands of people following talks with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
