In an interview with VOA Burmese Service on Tuesday, U Lwin, the spokesperson of Burma’s opposition party NLD said Daw Aung San Suu Kyi noted two things during her press conference at party headquarters in Rangoon.
She said her recent trips were successful for her party organizing activities but regretted the local authorities’intimidation of the townspeople to prevent them from welcoming her.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner also acknowledged that no dialogue had taken place between the military government and NLD since her release from house arrest last May although in certain areas she said some progress had been made.
In her New Year message, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said she hoped changes would take place in the coming years. During her recent trips, where she got to meet the local people, she said it was obvious that all ethnic nationalities were motivated to work towards political changes in Burma .
U Lwin also said, NLD will be issuing a statement on Burma’s 56th Independence Day anniversary which falls on January 4 Saturday.
