• Kerry broke no sanctions on Myanmar hotel


    WASHINGTON, D.C.: The United States said on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) that Secretary of State John Kerry technically abided his own government’s laws after he stayed in Myanmar at a hotel owned by a sanctioned tycoon. Myanmar, the host of talks this week among Southeast Asian foreign ministers in its showcase capital Naypyidaw, put up Kerry and his entourage at the Lake Garden hotel, which is owned by tycoon Zaw Zaw’s Max Myanmar Group. While Zaw Zaw himself was blacklisted, US law does not prohibit Americans from staying at accommodation owned by sanctioned companies.
