Myanmar tells UN it welcomes aid from all countries

UNITED NATIONS, May 9 (Reuters) - Myanmar will accept aid "from any quarter" to help victims of Saturday’s cyclone, its envoy told other U.N. members on Friday, confirming that Myanmar has approved a U.S. flight bringing relief supplies.

Speaking to U.N. ambassadors after the launch of a U.N. flash appeal, Ambassador Kyaw Tint Swe said he understood the first U.S. C-130 cargo flight would arrive as soon as Monday. (Reporting by Claudia Parsons; Editing by Bill Trott)
