MYANMAR-POLITICS

Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi (L) talks with Border Affairs Minister, Major General Thein Htay (R) as they attend the Economic Development Work shop held in Naypyidaw at the Myanmar International Convention Center in Naypyidaw on August 20, 2011. Myanmar's democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi on Saturday said she was "encouraged" by her first meeting with the country's new nominally civilian president. In her first comments on Friday's discussions with President Thein Sein, a former general, the Nobel laureate indicated that the one hour meeting in the capital Naypyidaw had gone well.
