NLD says no sign of any dialogue

Congressional Gold Medal to Aung San Suu Kyi

Burmese opposition, the National League for Democracy, says that for one month there’s been no sign of any dialogue with the military government.

The spokesman for the League, Nyan Win, said he’d not been allowed to speak to the detained opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, since before her last meeting with a government minister on the nineteenth of November.

The United Nations said there had been progress towards a dialogue after.

Burmese Leader Aung San Suu Kyi gets highest honour - the congressional Gold Medal, the US House of Representatives has voted to award Burmese pro-democracy Leader.The bill passed 400-0, said the move was meant to send a message to Burma's military leaders. "We will continue to pressure the junta to release her and bring freedom... to the people of Burma," said Joseph Crowley, a Democrat.

Her work and dedication to the cause of freedom and individual liberty has earned her recognition throughout the world, including the Nobel Peace Prize.

"Today, the US House of Representatives showed her and the world that she has also won the hearts and minds of the US Congress."

This bill will now be referred to the US Senate, which must also back the measure.
