Burmese pro-democracy opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi says reconciliation talks with the country's military government have stalled.
The National League for Democracy leader told a news conference in Rangoon today (Tuesday) that there has not been a dialogue between the two sides since her release from 19 months of house arrest in May.
But Aung San Suu Kyi said some progress has been made in recent months. She noted the release of hundreds of political prisoners, as well as the fact that the military government had allowed her to tour Burma to set up party offices.
The National League for Democracy won a sweeping victory in national elections in 1990. But Burma's military government never allowed the party to take power and Aung San Suu Kyi spent several years under house arrest.
Two years ago, the United Nations began mediating reconciliation talks between the military government and the opposition.
