Burmese Opposition Leaders Hold New Round of Talks - 2004-04-29


Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has met with top members of her National League for Democracy party for the second time this week.

Party officials met today (Thursday) at the Nobel laureate's home in Rangoon, where she is being held under house arrest.

Details of today's session were not released, but party leaders were expected to continue discussions on whether to attend a constitutional convention scheduled for May 17th.

National League for Democracy secretary U Lwin has said the opposition may not attend unless Aung San Suu Kyi is released from house arrest. The party leadership has also requested talks with the military government on convention rules.

Top party members were allowed to meet with Aung San Suu Kyi at her home Tuesday. It was the first time opposition party leadership had met as a group since their arrest nearly a year ago following a clash between pro-government and pro-democracy forces.

Burma's military government invited the National League for Democracy to attend the convention, but has not said whether Aung San Suu Kyi will be released in time to participate.
