Suu Kyi to meet Burma minister again
Myanmar's democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi is to hold a second round of talks with the country's nominally-civilian government, her spokesman said yesterday, amid tentative signs of a thaw in relations.
Friday's meeting with labour minister Aung Kyi will come two days before Suu Kyi is due to make her first overtly political trip outside Yangon since she was freed from house arrest in November.
"We do not know more details yet," Nyan Win, a spokesman for the Nobel Peace Prize winner and her National League for Democracy (NLD) party, told AFP.
Suu Kyi's talks with the same minister last month raised hopes for an ongoing dialogue between the two sides.
The talks came just days after the United States called for "concrete" progress towards democracy.
Washington has since named its first special envoy to Myanmar to pursue President Barack Obama's policy of engaging the military-backed government.
