Yangon, Sept 30 (AFP) Myanmar’s opposition party led by Aung San Suu Kyi said today there should be no pre-conditions for the United States starting a dialogue with the ruling junta.
The US announced Monday it was starting a dialogue with the military-led nation, although it insisted it would keep sanctions in place until the regime makes progress on democracy.
“Starting a dialogue between two countries is good. Daw Suu has said so,” said Nyan Win, a spokesman for the National League for Democracy (NLD). Daw is a term of respect in Myanmar.
“It will be the best if there are no pre-conditions in a dialogue,” he told AFP.
The US State Department said Tuesday that a senior US diplomatic official was set to meet with a delegation from Myanmar on the margins of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York.
