Burma: Aung San Suu Kyi Meets With Junta Official

12 January 2008 - Yesterday Aung San Suu Kyi, the detained Burmese pro-democracy leader, met with Relations Minister Aung Kyi, a senior member of the ruling junta.

The hour-long meeting was held in a government building near her Rangoon home. This was the fourth meeting between the two since the junta ruthlessly suppressed monk-led demonstrations last September.

Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has spent 12 of the last 18 years in detention since the junta cancelled the results of the election she won in 1990.
