Burma’s president meets opposition leader Suu Kyi
"They met at 1 p.m.," said a source close to officials, when Mizzima asked for confirmation.
The opening ceremony of a national-level workshop on poverty and economic development was delayed for one hour due to their meeting, the journal said.
Suu Kyi was officially invited to attend a national-level three-day workshop that ends on Sunday. High-level government officials, members of political parties and business representatives were invited to the workshop.
Participants in the workshop told 7 Days that they had not yet seen Suu Kyi who arrived in Naypyitaw on Friday.
Under a special arrangement, a government security team appeared at Suu Kyi’s home in Rangoon at 9.a.m. local time led by Special Branch Police commander Colonel Win Naing Tun and accompanied her to Naypyitaw.
Relations between the government and Suu Kyi have gradually improved following two meetings recently between Suu Kyi and government Minister Aung Kyi.
