We the ABSDF have learned that Mr. Bill Clinton the President of
the United States of America will be coming on an official visit
to Thailand from 25th-27th  November.

express our heartfelt greetings to the President, Mr. Clinton,
whose visit, we believe, will bring many positive benefits to the
region of Southeast Asia, including Burma.

The people of Burma who long for freedom from the repressive
military regime that rules our country will be greatly encouraged
by the arrival of the leader of the world's foremost democracy,
to this region.

governments of Burma neighbourings that genuine democracy, peace
and development in this region will come about only by protecting
