  • The spokesman of the National League for Democracy (NLD), Nyan Win told reporters in Rangoon on January 30, 2008 that Aung San Suu Kyi was ‘’not satisfied’’ with the meetings she has had with the military junta’s liaison officer, Labour Minister Aung Kyi, to resolve the country’s current political crisis. The meetings have been held as a result of the international pressure on the military junta after its crackdown of the pro-democracy protests in September 20071. The EU’s special envoy for Myanmar, Piero Fassino, after a meeting with Thai Foreign Minister Nitya Pibulsonggram on January 29 also urged the country’s military regime to free Suu Kyi2.

    In other developments, United Nations envoy on Myanmar, Ibrahim Gambari on a visit to New Delhi met Vice President Hamid Ansari, EAM Pranab Mukherjee and Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon3. Gambari discussed with Indian leaders the need to push for democratic reforms in that country4.
